In Memory Of Taylor

We are very sad to announce that Taylor’s final wish has been granted.  She went to heaven on the morning of Sunday September 23rd and we miss her more than words can possibly express. 

Thank you for all of your incredible support over the past ten years, and especially the last year. We have had many ups and downs, but are ever so grateful that we have had such a wonderful support network that has truly been there for us. We had seven incredible years of cancer free life with Taylor, and we soaked up every moment we could with our little ray of sunshine.

Taylor touched many different people’s lives over the years; she had a wide range of interests and passions, and was a free spirit in so many ways. The things that mattered most to Taylor included spending time with her family and friends, caring for others, and really LIVING life and having a ton of fun along the way.

We have received incredible and overwhelming support from many organizations over the years, however The Kids With Cancer Society has been by far the most incredible and life changing support system throughout our entire journey with Taylor.  If you would like to make a financial donation in Taylor’s memory, we would encourage you to direct it to the Kids With Cancer Society as the funds truly reach families like ours and make a real difference in our community. 

We are hoping to eventually create a memorial fund or event to continue to raise awareness of childhood cancer, help other families, and give back - in Taylor’s memory.  In the meantime, we are hoping to get all of you involved in remembering Taylor. In lieu of having a large service filled with tears and sadness, we are asking that people participate in doing something to remember Taylor and honour the amazing girl she was. This could involve fundraising, volunteering, donating, participating in an event, whatever feels like an experience that you feel would honour Taylor in some way.

We would love for people to share photos or video clips of their "experiences” inspired by Taylor with us on our Facebook Page and/or use the hashtag #AWishForTaylor on social media (or email us if you aren’t on social media).  Also, if you have favourite memories or things that made you laugh or feel connected to Taylor, that you would like to share with her family, please post these to the ‘A Wish For Taylor’ Facebook page or email them to us!

In loving memory of Taylor,
The Thiessen’s

My thoughts and prayers are with all the family during this difficult time. Taylor was a real trooper, a fighter right from the beginning of her precious life. My heart aches for you all. I would like to extend my deepest sympathies to you and praying that God’s strength will get you through the days and weeks ahead.
