Truly Inspiring: Taylor’s Story

In 2007, Taylor’s life was changed by the diagnosis of an inoperable tumor in her brain stem – glioblastoma.  Eight years old at the time, we had no idea what her future would hold.  

She is no longer able to communicate verbally, walk or eat by mouth.  She is blind & deaf on her left side and suffers from semi-paralysis on the right from her neck down.  Taylor has spent so much time in the hospital that giving back to the brain tumor community has been only a dream. 

Last month, Taylor proudly took her survivor lap at a Relay for Life event in Coweta County.  She also raised $1,200 to donate to brain tumor research through the Brain Tumor Foundation for Children.  Finding a cure is a gift she can share with other children with brain tumors.

In February 2012, Taylor celebrated five years as a brain tumor survivor.
