Taylor Grace Franklin's Leukemia Fund

Taylor Franklin is one of the sweetest, most compassionate people I have ever known. As her sister, I have witnessed her consistently go out of her way for other people in need to make sure that they are okay. So now, I feel compelled to do the same for her. On November 26th, 2013, Taylor was diagnosed with Leukemia. Being at the young age of 21, cancer is extremely rare for her age group: it only affects less than one percent of 15-24 year olds in the U.S., in which only 5% of patients are diagnosed with leukemia. Not only that, but Taylor has also had Epilepsy since she was 15.

Your donations in this fundraiser will go towards medical expenses needed to provide her treatment. Leukemia without treatment is terminal, giving her months and possibly weeks to live.

Taylor is currently getting treatment at the University of Minnesota Children's Hospital, Fairview. This specific location was named at the top of the list in 2[phone redacted] for top-ranked hospitals measured by cancer care in the United States.

Once we meet our goal for fundraising, we will give any additional money to help fund pediatric cancer research.

Please help support Taylor and our family in her journey to kick cancer's butt! Even the smallest donation could make the biggest difference!
