A teenager from Shakopee has been through a lot more than most kids her age.

Taylor Breimhorst, 15, was diagnosed with craniopharyngioma when she was just five years old. Her pituitary gland was removed, but the tumor came back. And she has undergone six different operations.

She's currently tumor-free, but she faces many permanent limitations. She is home-schooled, yet she still takes acting classes, takes part in triathlons and swims.

And she finds time to help others through various fundraising efforts, including working with the Pinky Swear Foundation - one of the partners in this year's KSTP Stuff the Sleigh Campaign.
