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.

Come join us in a day of encouragement and support for our dear friend Carla Maxwell.

 

Carla is an absolutely amazing testimony for positive, joyful living in the midst of adversity and if you know Carla - she will be looking for ways to encourage you!

 

The event will be an officially timed 5K run, however the course will be crowded and remember this event is not designed to post your personal best time but a focus on supporting Carla and her family.   For those not so serious when it comes to running, feel free to walk the 5K, walk a mile or whatever distance you are comfortable - crawl if you must!

 

We have set a lofty but obtainable goal of $30,000 to raise for Carla and Greg to help with medical expenses and the other expenses that come with battling cancer.   We encourage those of you that are interested and able, to make a generous contribution.  It is not required that you participate in the Run to make a financial contribution. 

 

Thanks again and look forward to seeing each of you on October 25th!
