Taylor: Adopted Cancer Warrior!
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.
Childhood Cancer Awareness Month is ending, but our life long journey in this community is just beginning.
What do you feel when you see this image of a bald family who gave up everything to save their son? You've watched our story unfold over the years, the ups and downs, unsure of the future...not certain of what to say. Some see sadness, fear and worry... but we see joy, faith and hope! Not only in tomorrow, but in today...for we know this battle is not ours alone! 2 Chronicles 20:17 “You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions; stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you, Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Go out to face them tomorrow, and the LORD will be with you.”
Please continue to SHARE this story. Tell your friends that you know & care for us! Tell them 7 kids die everyday because of this disease, but this child is still fighting for his right to live. Tell them it won't stop until we demand more funding & better treatment options. Tell your friends it can happen to them at any time.
We love you and we Thank God for you.
