I am the youngest of 20 cousins.  I have a twin cousin that is 7 days older (he reminds me all the time) and is the closest thing I have to a brother.  His 7 year old daughter Taylor has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  I cannot even fathom what this little girl and her whole family must be going through during this time. 

As they live in Colorado, there isn’t much I can do for him and his family aside from being a sounding board.  However, knowing they will be spending every waking minute at the hospital by Taylor’s side, getting everything else life needs covered will be a challenge.  Your donations will help cover any medical expenses and provide them the ability to take extended time away from work. 

Jacob and his family would never ask for a donation, so I am.  By raising money for their family, it will give them the most valuable thing they need; more time with their baby girl.  Your donations will allow that and help relieve any financial pressure that comes from it.

As a parent, nothing gets me fired up more than a spunky young child having to endure such a thing.  My goal is to relieve just a little bit of that stress.  Any donations given will provide a little piece of mind that my twin cousin and his family needs right now.

It has been a little over a month and Taylor and her family are geared up to continue attacking her Leukemia for the next 2 years. The overwhelming emotional and financial support has far exceeded everyone's expectations. Thank you, thank you, and thank you.

Her Dad Jacob posts regular updates to Taylor progress. If you have not already, please check them out as Jake is a great writer. This will be your best resource moving forward for regular updates and see how your contributions have and will continue to affect the family.

She is worthy! With everyone's love and support, together we have broken past our goal we set for Taylor and her family. Words cannot express the gratitude we feel regarding everyone's well wishes and contributions.

Taylor's fight is far from over. But we know that we can build with this as foundation. A safe shelter isn't any good without walls and roof. So this fund will continue to grow as their fight continues.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Let's keep it up.
If she be worthy shall possess the power

A little something about Jacob, Taylor's dad.

This guy and I have been close since birth. He was the best man at my wedding and the God Father to my first born son. He kidnapped my wife at our wedding to talk to her about what to expect from marrying me. His impulses keep things interesting.

We are referred to as twin cousins. My self the evil engineered master mind twin and he the hippie looking artist twin (seriously, he looked like Jesus of Nazareth with long hair and goatee which made him more guilty looking than I) who always thought my plans were a good idea.

Since the news of Taylor's condition, he has spent every waking minute by her side. He has been blogging this experience here:

It is simply amazing how he is able to articulate his thoughts during this time. He is an amazing Dad and a loving husband. They need him by their side for every minute they can.

All this goes to making this happen.
