The Story

Taylor has always been a smart fun-loving girl who likes to be involved with the community and willing to help anyone in need. 

Three years ago she started to become ill with a rapid decline in her health. And now today she has neurological and heart issues, severe pain and weakness, difficulties getting around, along with other issues. After three long years of struggle and heart break there was finally an answer for her of Lyme's Disease. Now the battle begins!  Unfortunately, proper treatment for Lyme's is very costly, and funding is needed to get Taylor her life back. 

Taylor is about to enter college next year, and because of her struggles and experience has sparked a fire in her to go to Medical School to help others that have suffered like her. 

Thank you for you time and reading Taylor's story!

Any remaining funds will be donated to other families in need of medical funding for Lyme's treatment.

Taylor has had many struggles in the recent months.  She has developed gastroparesis and her weight has dropped drastically to 85 pounds which has developed other symptoms.  A feeding tube has been placed in hopes to get her back up to a healthy weight.  Taylor has recently visited a treatment facility to receive therapies to help her build her immune system and knock out the infections that have taken over.  But, unfortunately they were not able to continue with treatment due to her poor veins and needs a port to continue.  They were able to do what they could which there was some improvement, and we learned a lot and have pointed us in the right direction.  So for now we have returned home to work on the issues with gastrology that are still uncertain and finding a doctor they may help with inserting a port to continue treatment. 
But, the most hopeful advice that has been given to where the most beneficial treatment for her case is to head off for treatment in Germany.  She will receive many forms of treatment and detoxing protocols.  We feel this is our last hope in getting Taylor her life back and off to Med School herself to help others that have been through this struggle as well.  There is openings in September and is a three week treatment.  The cost of treatment and lodging will be $27,300 plus airfare.  We will forever be truly grateful to get Taylor back on the path to healing!!

Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts! We appreciate all of your support through this difficult journey!  Taylor has had her follow-up appointment with her LLMD to go over her results to determine the best path for treatment.  She is going to have a long road ahead of her.  She has two tick born illnesses, Lyme and Erlichiosis, as well as two other co-infections to fight.  Before he can start treatment he needs to get her immune system up as well as some other levels.  So her body can handle the intensity of the IV treatments. 

Taylor has since been homebound from school.  Which has been really hard on her not being able to have a normal senior year, but I have hope that she will get through this so she can go on to follow her dream to change the many lives that have also been affected by Lymes and other chronic illnesses.
