Taylor, your life was not only about what you accomplished, but also about what you left behind. Your boundless optimism at the bleakest moments, your concern for others even when you were at your worst, and your zest for life even as death neared taught me more about love than I thought there was to know.
We will continue to fight in your honor and will never falter in our commitment to you and to children with cancer everywhere. We are keeping your spirit, your thirst to make change, and your dedication to help others alive. While your life was tragically cut short, your mark on the world lives on in our family, in the organization, and in children who have and will win their battles against cancer thanks to you.
Just to think of you reminds of why what I do is so important. Thank you for a lifetime of love and showing us all what humanity really means. I will always have your heart.
