I am proud to see what this organization has accomplished and the support it has given me and my family going through some of the roughest times we have ever had to endure.
We run every year in Taylor’s name to help support this organization. Although we can’t be there with the group, it means the world to put feet to the ground and have it mean so much.
I just received your check in the mail and it felt like a dream come true. We had to leave our home and say goodbye to everyone and everything we knew to fight this disease. This gift is truly a blessing and there are not enough words to say thank you. I will never forget this and will hold this foundation very close to my heart.
