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.

On the way to the doctor this morning, Taylor said "Today, I feel like I'm going to make it, more than ever before!" We are blessed he has such a fighting spirit. He had a pretty long day at the clinic & spent some of the time asleep in isolation from a cocktail of meds to help boost his immune system. He has been removed from the iv nutrition and his stomach is finally starting to heal. We will continue to have weekly visits to the clinic to keep the GVHD in check. He is still walking a very thin line in this battle, but his numbers are higher (ANC 3300) than ever before. Thank you for your constant prayers and support. The kids had a wonderful holiday season and entered the new year with a renewed sense of joy and hope. We love you all.

Blessed New Year from Team Hammond! We are so grateful to spend one more holiday together. Thank you for your prayers this year, they helped push us through the toughest battles. We will have a medical update on Taylor next week. He is doing ok, and is happy to be home. Please keep all the families in our childhood cancer community in your prayers, especially the family of sweet Michael Young, who will forever be 13 in heaven. We love you and we thank God for you.

Two months ago, we were encouraged to celebrate Christmas early because it wasn't certain that Taylor was going to make it to see another holiday. We tried to cram as many memory making opportunities into the past few weeks as we could. We also prayed for a Christmas miracle on his behalf. The Lord answered our call and has shown us more grace than we deserve. This Christmas was so special for many reasons. Thank you to all of the friends and strangers (who have become friends) for making their day so wonderful. These are the faces of Joy.

Team Hammond is certainly their brother's keeper. They had a great time at the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada & Children's Specialty Center of Nevada christmas party at FLIPnOUT Xtreme. But they were all business when it was time to get Taylor home. We are so happy to have him home for Christmas. He is better, but not completely well. He is currently on TPN (iv nutrition) and on a very limited clear liquid diet. Any deviation will land him back in the hospital and could permanently damage his stomach. We are asking everyone to please love him up with caution and do not give him anything to eat or drink. Please try and resist his cuteness. Once he is settled, we will open our home to visits for family and friends. He will have daily clinic visits to monitor his GVHD and pain levels. Thank you for praying for us during this time. The last day to order shirts is Friday, thank you to all who have supported this campaign. We love you all.
