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.

A year ago today, our little warrior said goodbye to his best friend. To this day he still can't speak his name, the hurt is still very fresh in his fragile heart. Being out of school and in isolation for years, limits his connections with other kids. But the Lord was so gracious to send a sweet teenager named Cooper into our lives. He was kind and gentle with our boy, indulging his every whim, even silly photos with Birdie. He is loved and missed dearly.
Taylor had a long infusion of ivig to boost his immune system yesterday. His counts dropped a little from 2 weeks ago. We will continue to monitor his progress and pray for better results next time. Please continue to pray for him, as he is still in the battle for his very life. Also keep TeamMichaelBear in your thoughts, another local Las Vegas family who had to travel to CHLA for a bone marrow transplant. He fights for life tonight. We know the Lord is with us all.

The future is so bright, for our sweet boy. He is so happy to have been named the 2017 Boy of the Year for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Southern Nevada! We will post links to events where he will be representing the organization around the Las Vegas valley. You are always welcome to join us if you can.
We are still in a sort of limbo with his care. Some of his counts are better, while others have dropped. We are taking a break from the clinic this week to even out his meds schedule and to keep his exposure down. He is still on anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-rejection meds, multiple times a day. He also has a host of other supplements and dietary restrictions to keep him safe. It can be hard on him, at times, to miss out on activities, but he tries to make every situation as fun as he is. Thank you for checking in on us. Please continue to pray for him and the rest of Team Hammond. We love you all.

I'm sorry it's been a while since we've posted an update. We've been trying to get a grip on a stable life for Team Hammond. Taylor went into clinic today for his weekly lab check. We even saw some of our favorite friends, One for all & all for Elann and his sweet family. When you are in treatment for years, your best friends are fellow patients and staff become aunts and uncles. We are blessed to have this small community, we call family, with us, even on the tough days.
The past few weeks, Taylor's counts are not looking great. He feels ok, eating good, has a lot of energy, etc. However, current trends may be evidence of another relapse. Please continue to lift him up in prayer. We know God is able and will have His way.

Taylor was diagnosed with cancer 4 years ago on this day. Thinking of the first days of this journey is sobering and a little emotional, at least for Mom. Thankfully he's happy and could care less, loving each day. He's feeling better and his counts are great. We don't take these milestones lightly, because so many of our friends are no longer here to fight another day. He fights for them in spirit. Thank you to all who have stood by us in prayer over his battle throughout the years. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. We love you all.

I've seen Jennifer's posts on Taylor's progress and am very saddened he has take a turn for the worse. I pray Christmas will bring healing and relief.
