The food was wonderful, and the atmosphere and hospitality were spectacular. I would like to thank Fort Gay PK8, Crum PK8, and Tolsia for their support in making the wonderful baskets, trees, and wreaths for the silent auction and participation. I’m grateful to the singers who came to sing in support of our Taycat. Thanks to the participants and workers who donated their time to make today successful. A special thanks to the staff at Fort Gay PK8 for putting the event together. The outstanding support confirms that the people of our community are committed to providing the highest quality of care and support for Taylor.”
#TAYLORSTROOPERS posted this as her last update on Dec. 3, 2018.
UPDATE: She has been Happy to be home, it has been a joy for her this weekend and it has been fast. She goes to the doctor Tuesday to draw blood at Marshall Health/Cabell to ensure she is ready for our next round of treatment. Then Wednesday we go for an MVR in Columbus, so they can find her best veins. She will then be submitted to the hospital Thursday and have surgery that will allow a way for the doctors to draw blood and administer chemotherapy during her second round of treatment. Let’s pray for her anxiety to be low, she does not like this part of the process, it is those needles. Let’s pray her spirits to remain high and she fights like the warrior we all know. Round two here we come! Thanks for all the prayers.
The communities of Fort Gay and Louisa wish Taylor and her family prayers and strength as she starts Round 2 of treatment.
