Sixteen. A time of high school activities, beginning college plans and perhaps even dating. Stefanie Renkema was doing none of these things. After an injury on the basketball court while playing her favorite sport, Stefanie was experiencing pain in her lower back/ tailbone area. The continuing pain led Stefanie to her local doctor. Scans and biopsies later, Stefanie was diagnosed with a giant cell tumor, benign but aggressive, in her sacrum.
The pilot relied on his co-pilot to call off the pre-flight checklist. The gears, the gauges, the fuel, the wings – all were in order as the co-pilot reported with steady concentration. One completed, they set off into the air.
