Brant had been dealing with a lot of back pain the first week of February. He went to the Doctor thinking he had been suffering from a bowel abstraction. The next day he ended up in the Er in Windom. After having a CT scan they sent him to SFalls with what appeared to be several masses in his abdominal region. Sanford in SFalls arranged for many tests to be done and by morning the Doctors confirmed Brant had cancer.
