Taylor in a poolPlay video

In 2006, at age 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, made possible by an infrastructure grant from ALSF, Taylor and her family finally had hope.
