We have been blessed today with a clear MRI. It is a day to be thankful and celebrate. There is an African proverb that I am sure all have heard "it takes a village to raise a child" also takes a village to save a child.

I want to thank everyone for the tremendous support they have given Taylor, Mindy and Landon. It is a true blessing to know all of you and have you supporting Taylor. I hope no one ever thinks that their unimportant. Each and every person is so integral in this battle that I hope you give yourself a pat on the back today for helping save someones life.

I read the newspaper and listen sometimes to peoples comments lately and I know I was feeling very down and frustrated that there "seems" to be so many negative, mean people out there...and then I remember all of you and the kindness, prayers, wishes that you have given through this battle and I know I will continue to look for the good, the positive and the love that does exist in the world. We need to remember that there are a lot of complainers...or that is how it seems, however that is not true, they are simply the loudest. There are more people who every day offer kindness, love and compassion, they are just quieter as they do not seek praise for all they do...THANK-YOU!!!

It has been a horrible wait for Landon and Mindy up until today as they had to live in the "unknown" yet again, but it is over for this battle. There may be more, but we are stronger with each passing success that occurs. I feel only hope when I think of Taylor. Miracles do come true

Congratulations!!!! She is such a beautiful little girl! My daughter Paige is now 5 years out from her brain tumor and we go on Monday for our next MRI! Taylor's Grandmother shared her story with us on Paige's caringbridge.
It's so wonderful to hear of another story like this! I will be sure and pass it along!

Thanks Miranda, my sister sent me your e-mail as she was wondering how you found her.LOL My Mom had told me before that she regularly looked on the Caring Bridge so I knew right away. I am so happy that you contacted us though as it means the world to here about Paige and her success! We have so few successes with this type of cancer to compare Taylor with, but now hearing about Paige it sure sounds amazing! These little girls must be tremendous fighters and have a very significant purpose in the world...I can't wait to find out what that is! Thank you
