From the series, The Problem of Blood

My young cousin underwent surgery to remove a tumor on her kidney. She suffers from a rare hereditary disease called Von Hippel-Lindau. The surgery was successful and she is living a normal teenage life, but the disease means she may have to face recurring tumors and other complications later on.
