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.

Nice weekend so far!

VERY nice visitors, Taylor is doing very well, and things are moving pretty quickly.  She's supposed to finish tomorrow before 5:00, so she'll head back to the dorm and get ready for the school week.

Thank you again for all the wonderful thoughts and prayers.  Thank you also for the nice gifts!  Taylor really loves seeing everyone, and she LOVES her gifts!

She and Chris finished the Trevi Fountain!  NICE!

Glad that the weekend was good. At least Taylor is through with one more round and can get back to school and to her friends. Prayers continue for healing and finding out how to get the cancer away once and for all. Taking this one day at a time seems like the only way to handle it. It sounds like she has such good team of Drs. behind her that they are doing everything possible to take care of her. Prayers also for her Drs. and there teams to find out the best way to treat this terrible disease. Prayers for all family members as this is a very hard time for all. There will be brighter days to come.

Take care and God Bless,
Suzanne and Alexis
