I am privileged to share with you this amazing young woman who has inspired me with her journey of a childhood illness to health, of acceptance to finding joy in her daily life.
I’m so pleased to share what Taylor has done by choosing joy and really live life to the fullest! You will see that her disease does not limit her will to find a way and to strive to be the best.
Taylor is a strong and a goal focused girl. I am so lucky to have watched her grow up. I can’t wait to see how she uses what she has learned and helps the world around her.
