In June of 2008, Taylor was a typical four and a half year old when his family noticed bruises on his legs. After a trip to the ER and many tests, Taylor was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) with Philadelphia Chromosome and central nervous system involvement. Over a year later and after numerous treatments, Taylor received a bone marrow transplant from a donor in Germany. Taylor is now a very healthy and happy 12 year old. Taylor loves to read and play with his dog Levie. He dreams of becoming a computer programmer when he grows up.
