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.

This was so touching!  This is a wonderful group of young men and women.  Taylor and Tara are so excited to meet all of them!

Last year they raised over $850,000 for pediatric cancer kids, and I'm hoping they top that number this year.

If you would like to help, again Taylor is taking donations for this wonderful project.
