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 she'll start chemo.  She is still attending TCU this year and participating in all the college activities she can fit into her calendar.

Great day today!

All good today.

Taylor felt good all day long.

We had a bunch of wonderful visitors today including Julia's long time friend Laura, lots of Chi O girls, and even Tay's great high school buddies Lauren and Abby.  (Abby came all the way from Arkansas!)

We visited with our next door neighbor Kamryn and shared some cheesecake, which she loves.  She looked amazing and we're all praying that she gets to go home tomorrow because MONDAY IS HER BIRTHDAY!!

We also met Kamryn's little buddy on the floor Katie.  She is the cutest little thing!  She's had a run of bad luck so please keep her in your thoughts and prayers too!  Here's her picture.

It was a beautiful day here in Ft. Worth.  The old cattle barons mansion next door, Thistle Hill, was hosting a big rowdy wedding and that lucky couple could not have asked for better weather!

Overall just a wonderful day!

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Tay, Kamryn, and Katie!
