Team Taylor!

This is the story on my amazing, beautiful and strong 10 year old niece Taylor.  

From very early on in Taylor’s life we knew she was a fighter. In 2009, at 20 months old, Taylor was diagnosed with a grade 3 anaplastic ependymoma, a cancerous brain tumor. She underwent over 16 hours of brain surgery to remove about 90% of the tumor and then had proton beam radiation therapy to get the rest. After 8 years of clear MRI scans, a scan in September showed a new small growth. In February of 2018, Taylor underwent brain surgery again to remove the new tumor. Pathology confirmed it was the same type of tumor as before. In the next few weeks, Taylor will be going through 6 weeks of proton beam radiation treatment at the Chicago Proton Center.
I am asking for help for my brother and sister in law ( Jim and Katie Ring) who are ready to endure another fight for Taylor. They will be traveling to Chicago daily so Taylor can get radiation. The bills alone from surgery are starting to come in. Katie is a stay at home mom raising 4 beautiful children. Jim is an electrician and the sole provider for the family. We would like to help ease their burdens of the costs they are getting ready to endure with traveling for Taylor's radiation, the hospital bills, and the many other expenses that will start piling up. We ask that everyone please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.  They have an amazing support system and our main goal is to help Taylor with her fight!! Thank you all and God Bless! #TeamTaylor
