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 +62 (9/16/2016) When battling childhood cancer, every day is certainly a victory. We are so grateful to the Las Vegas Review-Journal​ and their awesome reporter Paul Harasim and photographer Benjamin Hager​ for the heartwarming article about our family in today's paper (Section B, page 1). Paul wanted every detail of our story and took great care to write a condensed narrative about Team Hammond's origins.

Day +47 (9/1/2016) The best way to go home to Vegas is to spend a night out on the town. Taylor was released from CHLA to come home yesterday and we snuck back into town last night. The doctor was so impressed by his progress, he gave him a two week break. Taylor will continue to be under the care of the BMT team at CHLA until further notice. We are now able to be home and travel to his appts to LA once each week. If he has any complications, we will have to travel back to CHLA asap. These little smiles are a fraction of the joy we feel to have him home with all our babies. We were blessed to spend the evening at a special ceremony held by our friends at Candlelighters, lighting the Fremont Street Experience Gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Please continue to pray for Taylor and his strength. Being back home has been overwhelming and his body is trying to adjust. We love you and we give all glory to God.

Day +45 (8/30/16) Taylor is excited go for a ride this evening with mom and dad. He wears his medal everywhere like a true champ. This is his new post BMT uniform, no matter the weather. He has to be covered in long sleeves, pants, socks, mask and a hat to protect him from any sun exposure. The sun can aggravate his cells and cause GVHD. He has adjusted to playing outside after dark and even met a few friends here at Ronald McDonald House . He gets another check up in the morning. Please pray for awesome counts and complete healing. Thank you for all the love sent our way.
