Lil Taryn's Long Road Ahead

A month ago our 4 year old daughter Taryn, went to stand up to go play and immediately collapsed. She complained of pain in her left leg and hip. Taryn was unable to walk, run or do anything a normal child her age could do. A chiropractor visit, 4 doctor visits, 2 emergency room visits, a cat scan, and 4 X-rays later, it was determined she has a stage 4 cancer called Neuroblastoma. With the right treatment and her body accepting the chemotherapy, her chance of surviving the next 5 years is 40%. Those percentages obviously drop the more years of survival you consider. Taryn will start chemotherapy next week and we have started making a bucket list for her to accomplish one at a time, whenever she is able to. And the medical costs themselves will be more than we can handle on our own. Her beautiful life may be cut way too short, but with your help, we can make what life she has left, as enjoyable for her as possible.
