"Tanya was 21 when she started growing. She had been living in Michigan for about three years, so she came back to Las Vegas in April of 2002. Allen (Tanya's step dad since she was 2 years old) and I were out of town, so Tanya's sister Susie (who suffers from Tarlov Cysts and has had 3 back surgeries herself) picked her up at the airport. Susie saw a significant physical change in her sister and Tanya was taken to a friend who is a pediatrician. A few days later, our family's lives changed forever."
