*UPDATE* Taylor was recently diagnosed with a secondary cancer (MDS) and is now battling aggressive AML Leukemia. He has exhausted all treatment options and is currently in palliative/hospice care.
However, he's been taking a special oil from our friends at PharmaXtracts and has been living his best days! Without the oil, he would not have the chance to live his life on his terms. He has been stable the past few months, only having therapeutic blood and platelet transfusions to help give him energy. Taylor has been fighting cancer for over 4.5 years and will not give up now. Thank you for your prayers and support!
Bio 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 10 years.
One of our superhero sons, Taylor, has been diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. He is the bravest boy we know. He was hospitalized and received 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.
