When Taylor Wind was 14, she found a lump behind her ear. Doctors, however, dismissed it as nothing to be concerned about. But as the lump grew bigger, her mom, Susan, wanted a second opinion. Then, with a diagnosis of thyroid cancer, the pair suspected a link to some bizarre goings on in their North Carolina hometown.
Now, the Winds are from Mooresville, North Carolina. It is situated on Lake Norman, around 25 miles northwest of Charlotte, and serves as a commuter area to the state’s largest city. The town was founded on farmland, mostly cotton, in the 18th century. And Mooresville was inaugurated in 1873 by local businessman, John Franklin Moore.
