My Story

Taylor is a child who has always been active and has played softball for the past several years. She was actually planning on making this a sport for college. She played every week from March 2009 until Nov. 2009. She loved it so much she was actually sad when 2009 was over. She was actually nicknamed "BALL-MAGNET" because she was always the unlucky one to get hit by the pitcher. She was hit in the knee foot and actually the back several times last year, but she would always get back up and keep going. She actually tried out for the school softball team in Feb. of this year. She found out that she made the team the same day she found out that she may have cancer. What a blow to our family! It has been very hard to keep her off her leg since she has always been so active. Taylor is halfway thru her treatments and has actually has a bone allograft and a total knee replacement to remove and repair where the tumor was. There has been no evidence of the cancer anywhere else in her body and hopefully with the treatment she is giving and if it is God's will, she will be completely cancer free. Her goal at this time is to be walking again by Nov 2010 and be back to softball come Feb 2011. Her Dr. has actually said that her chance at playing softball in Feb 2011 is a possibility, but it depends on her therapy.
