On February 18th, eat a scoop or two of ice cream for breakfast to remember Taylor Grace, because kids get cancer too.
Taylor Grace was a happy, brave, smart 3 year old who loved to smile and whose laughter was magical. She loved coloring, being outdoors–collecting rocks and pine-cones, riding her tricycle, blowing bubbles, playing with her dog Maggie, reading books, building puzzles, making crafts, exploring new parks, animals, singing songs and snuggling her blankies! And she was VERY excited when she found out she was going to be a big sister.
She is deeply loved and missed – by her Mommy and Daddy, Baby Sister Karlie, Grandma & Grandpa, Papa & Gramma, Nona, Great-Grandmas, Cousins, lots of Aunts and Uncles & friends and friends of friends from coast to coast.
Taylor Grace was first diagnosed with AML (Acute myeloid leukemia) in June of 2013 at just 18 months. After 6 months of treatment, Taylor gained remission and returned home in November of 2013, just one month before her 2nd Birthday. Taylor Grace was in remission for around 14 months before her cancer returned in a cruel and ugly way. She was admitted and diagnosed with relapse just 2 days after her 3rd Birthday. Her relapse was known as a Isolated Central Nervous System AML (Leukemia).
She gained her angel wings on February 11, 2015, before she was able to meet her baby sister. The 3 years her family was blessed by Taylor Grace’s presence will hold a lifetime of memories. She touched the lives of SO many.
