We honor local resident and childhood cancer warrior, Taylor Love. From the age of 18 months to 5 years, Taylor battled 2 childhood cancers. The secondary cancer a result of the toxic treatments she received. Taylor endured extensive rounds of high dose chemotherapy, received a bone marrow transplant, fought through kidney failure and has had countless surgeries, procedures, pokes and tests. Taylor returned to the hospital with another occurrence of kidney failure in May of this year. She is on the road to healing and hopes to be back in stride and run in the 5k portion of Tri for Love this year. Taylor is a very determined, inspiring little girl who embraces the good things she finds in life.
This year Taylor turns 10! A true milestone in the cancer world she has fought to overcome. Help us celebrate Taylor's valiant fight and zest for life. Together we will continue to support Taylor's medical expenses and bring awareness and action to this much neglected childhood disease.
