Julie Pendleton thought she was just being cautious when she went to the doctor in July 2010. The Laguna Beach resident thought the abdominal pain she was feeling could indicate appendicitis. After getting a CAT scan, the doctor revealed something much worse: a tumor. This weekend, Pendleton, 66, will be honored as the queen of the 10th annual Relay for Life at El Morro Elementary School. The former speech therapist was diagnosed with ovarian cancer last year. She said she couldn't imagine how a 4- by 6-inch tumor had made its way into her abdominal area without her knowledge.
