When a child is ill, siblings, classmates and the entire community is affected. People want to do something positive to show love and support. Often people don’t know what to do or say to help, so they don’t do anything. In between Taylor’s chemotherapy treatments, her entire family — sisters Ryan and Cory and her parents — invited people to come together to do something kind for other hospitalized children. On a bright sunny morning, 200 friends, neighbors and classmates came together for a celebration at the local elementary school. Everyone decorated 200 quilts and pillows to donate to hospitalized children at the Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center. Taylor and her family were grateful to deliver all of the quilts and pillows to patients in order to “pay it forward” and share the love. After Taylor’s second lung surgery she told her mom, “I feel lucky because if I hadn’t gotten sick I wouldn’t have spent so much time with my cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents and friends. Mostly, I feel lucky because I probably never would have known how many people love me… and care.”
