Taylor’s Story

Taylor was diagnosed with colon cancer in early 2011 when she was only 14 years old.  She had surgery to remove a portion of her colon, followed by 12 rounds of chemotherapy and a surgical procedure called HIPEC at MD Anderson hospital in Houston, TX.

The cancer returned in September of 2012 in an aggressive way.  Two large masses were discovered in her abdomen which turned out later to be her ovaries.  She had an additional 12 rounds of chemo, the HIPEC procedure again, then 3 follow-up rounds of chemo.

She was cancer free for her entire senior year, but in August of 2014 the cancer returned for a third time.  She had a mass removed from her abdomen and had several rounds of chemotherapy, but in July of 2015 the chemo stopped working, and the mass began to grow again.  We were going to travel to MD Anderson to have another surgery but the cancer has now spread to both her breasts. We are currently waiting to do a PET scan and decide what treatment plan is best.

In the meantime Taylor is about to start her sophomore year at TCU and she's very excited about all the upcoming school and Chi Omega fun!
