(ABC 6 News) -- For more than two years ABC 6 has been following an alarming trend of pediatric cancer cases in the Kasson-Mantorville community.
A dozen families impacted by cancer.  This week, we've learned one of the families is back in the hospital.   

7- year-old Autumn Heidemann was diagnosed with Wilms tumor two years ago. This week, we learned her cancer has returned.

As we reported, Autumn was in remission in 2012 when six more children from Kasson-Mantorville area were diagnosed with cancer.
Autumn had surgery this week and was just released from the hospital Thursday.
