Katie thought she was having intolerance issues, but after going to the doctor, she found out she had bowel cancer. "Because of my age and having no history they didn't consider it...but when I found out, yes it was scary, but I was just thinking 'thank God it isn't Kristal or Cassie,'" Katie said to the Daily Mail.
