Nicole L. Hammond   NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV
Team Hammond is a foster and adoptive family from Las Vegas, Nevada. We have adopted 6 small special needs children out of foster care over the past 8 years. Our family was featured on our local CBS affiliate during one of our adoptions. News link www.tinyurl.com/teamhammond1

One of our super hero sons, Taylor, has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. He is the bravest boy we know. He is currently hospitalized and receiving a mix of intensive inpatient and outpatient chemotherapy. We are grateful that he is under the care of one of the top Pediatric Hematologists/Oncologists in the nation.

We have no doubt that he will beat this. He is a tough boy, but as sweet and genuine as only a child can be. He is in good spirits and loves all the well wishes he has received. He hates the pokes and pricks, but loves the popsicles and pudding. He enjoys watching SpongeBob, Wipeout & The Cosby Show. He is currently homeschooled to limit his exposure to germs. 

Our friends and family have shown us so much support. We have set up this page to allow all of those who wish to help us during this journey. Every dollar, prayer, well wish, and good thought has not and will not go unnoticed. Every donation is appreciated, no matter how big or small. All donations go to helping offset all related costs of Taylor's care.


We love and appreciate all of you. If you have watched our journey, you know there is a greater good at work in this family. This situation will not stop us. It will make us more determined and solidified to continue the work we have started in our children.

We thank you and Taylor thanks you for your time and generosity. Please feel free to contact us at anytime. Follow us on twitter at @Team_Hammond and on FaceBook at www.facebook.com/LordPleaseHealTaylor for our latest updates.

Day +39 Taylor had a clinic appointment this morning and got some great news. His latest bone marrow biopsy came back with no evidence of disease and was 100% donor cells! The BMT team is thrilled with his progress, but cautious of sending us back home. We will continue to stay in LA until he is removed from a few immunosuppressive meds in late October. The thought of going home is tempting, as living in two cities is stretching our resources extremely thin. We will stay the course and know that God will provide in due time. Thank you for your continued support and prayers.

Day +36 (8/21/16) Taylor is feeling patriotic today as he watches the Olympic games come to a close. He was so happy everyone enjoyed his video and loved the messages of support. He is doing well, a little tired, but resting and getting stronger each day. He grew in just a few days and his face and feet are a little swollen. Looks like he'll need new pants and socks. Lol! Thank you for all the love sent our way. We feel it each day.

It's day 1277 of Taylor's cancer journey, 3 years and 6 months exactly. He's been inpatient for 42 days during his life saving bone marrow transplant. He's in the hardest fight of his life. We're beyond blessed to say he is free from the hospital and is doing well. He will be in seclusion for a year, as his immune system builds and will be monitored closely each week. We are still in Los Angeles until the end of October. Thank you for your prayers and support during this time. Please continue to pray for his strength and for our family during this time of separation. We love you all!

Day +23 (8/8/16) Taylor said he loves to watch the sunset down Sunset Blvd. He gets a kick out out of that. He's in stable condition, no real medical issues to report. His blood pressure is stable with meds and he's being weaned off the TPN and starting to eat just a little bit more. The doctors are pleased with his progress so far and say he'll be released from the hospital soon. He finally has counts! His ANC is 160 today, which is great news. Once he's above 500 for 3 days, he can be released. He will have to stay close to CHLA until day +100 for checkups and blood work. While Taylor's medical status gives us hope, the separation of our family has taken an emotional toll on us all. Please continue to pray for us. We love you all.
