Taylor Is Perfect

Taylor Shaw had a cardiac arrest on February 22, 2014 after an exercise run in Boston where she attended school at MIT.  She was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital where the inital diagnosis was blunt and simple "persistent vegetative state for the rest of her life".  Taylor's true grit and determination has proved all the doctors wrong and miraculously she is in the 5% that defy the old methods of prediction.  
After being at Massachusetts General Hospital for 5 weeks she was air ambulanced to Craig Hospital in Denver for Rehab.  Insurance did not cover the transfer*, nor does it keep her family by her side so costs have, and continue to be, incurred.  To date the Shaw's have not asked for anything other than positive thoughts to help the amazing Taylor who is truly Perfect, but now there is something we can do to help.
Taylor is able to communicate with simple gestures, "yes" is stick out your tongue, "no" is shake your head from side to side and "I don't know" is close your eyes.  One day she will be able to thank you herself but in the meantime please accept my appreciation for contributing to such a noble cause.
