How You’re HelpingWatch the video
In 2006, at age 11, Taylor was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. After 9 months of chemotherapy and surgery on her right arm, Taylor was declared cancer-free. Unfortunately, she relapsed 18 months later when a spot was found on her lung. After her third relapse, the family was desperate for a cure. Thanks to a clinical trial, made possible by an infrastructure grant from ALSF, Taylor and her family finally had hope.
This database aims to understand the different reasons and ways that childhood cancer can impact families.
