Meet Taylor and watch her inspiring story!
In 2006, at the age of 11, Taylor was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. After 9 months of chemotherapy and surgery on her right arm, Taylor was declared cancer-free. Unfortunately, she relapsed 18 months later when a spot was found on her lung. After her third relapse, the family was desperate for a cure. Thanks to a clinical trial at Texas Children's Hospital that was made possible by an infrastructure grant from Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, Taylor and her family finally had hope and her cancer disappeared. Today, she is a college student at University of North Alabama studying to become a pediatric oncology nurse.
