Tay-bandz is such an inspirational organization. Their products are truly high quality and they all have or had meaning to the little girl whose namesake and zealous spirit and drive founded the charity, Taylor. The fundraisers that are held are varied and spirited, and, even more than raising money, they raise awareness and they excite and consequently energize people to get involved in giving back. The organization empowers the young and old alike to step up and make a difference!

What an incredible organization! Tay-Bandz helps empower kids to lead the fight against pediatric cancer. They have an array of programs and opportunities that are tailored for kids of all ages and interests, and make it exciting and rewarding to volunteer. A personal favorite of mine is the new "Tunes For Tay" program, where a cappella groups come together and use their talents to raise awareness and donations for the cause!

This wonderful charity seeks to raise money to fund research for Pediatric Cancer. Many of the fundraising events are organized by young people at colleges and high schools around the country. This charity was founded by an extraordinary child, Taylor Matthews, who fought a brave and inspirational battle against cancer during her all-too-short life. Tay-bandz continues Taylor's fight to help others who receive this horrendous diagnosis. I am honored to be associated with this fine organization.

I am honored to be associated with tay-bandz, a very special charity started by an eleven-year-old child who was diagnosed with cancer. The funds raised fill a desperate need for pediatric cancer research because childhood cancers receive very little attention in comparison to adult cancers. The impact that Taylor has made through this charity cannot be understated. This is her legacy, and through tay-bandz, we hope that her wish of "Someday no child will ever have to face cancer" will come true.

Tay-bandz is about kids curing cancer. Besides being committed to making childhood cancer a thing of the past, they are committed to creating opportunities for children and young adults to have an impact. Armed with the knowledge that each pediatric cancer diagnosis ripples beyond the family, into the playground and the community, Tay-bandz has articulated a path which makes philanthropy readily accessible, even to the young. Much time is spent partnering with the young on creating and organizing events of all sizes; opportunities for people of all ages to be heard and to learn; to learn about themselves and the pleasure of working to bring about change.

Tay-Bandz is an amazing nonprofit because its mission is clear and it serves researchers and the children they will potentially cure.
Tay-Bandz also provides an awesome experience for its volunteers, participants in Relays and fundraisers and donors, who feel empowered to make a difference and
change the course of the life of a child with cancer.

Tay-bandz's mission aligns with the integrity and values of its founder, Taylor Matthews, who battled cancer with spirit, bravery and a determination to make a difference for the children who would receive a cancer diagnosis, and be faced with the tragic reality that there is precious little funding to find effective treatments for pediatric cancers. Like Taylor, who was involved in the creation and expansion of Tay-bandz, this organization uniquely involves children and young adults in its fundraising and awareness raising efforts. It is empowering for them -- these volunteers and event participants can truly feel that they are part of the effort to find a way for no child to have to face cancer. This is a an organization that is united in its commitment to children with cancer and to funding critical research. Because of research that was funded by Tay-bandz, children with particular types of cancer are already hearing promising prognoses when just a few years ago they would have faced a death sentence! I am proud to serve on the board and as a professional in the field of health advocacy, this is in my opinion one of the best charities doing this type of work. It's not only about raising money, it's about raising awareness and compassion and making a difference not just for the recipients of the research grants and their patients, but also for those who donate.

Tay-bandz is deeply committed to raising awareness of and funding for pediatric cancer research. Pediatric cancers are poorly understood and poorly funded. The foundation seeks to fund cutting-edge protocols that will make a difference in patients' lives today.
It is an honor to serve on this
passionate board. It was founded by an 11-year-old who sought to change the world while fighting her own battle against cancer. Her spirit and courage were infectious and the foundation survives her and honors her everyday. Nothing could be more important than the health and well-being of our children.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give it millions every year.

tay-bandz started out at the kitchen table of a beautiful 11-year-old recently diagnosed with cancer. Taylor fought her disease with bravery and dignity while also fighting the indignity of inadequate funding and research for pediatric cancer in the world's most advanced nation. When Taylor died, the foundation had already raised $750,000 through the determination of Taylor and legions of kids supporting her and the mission. tay-bandz has maintained its kitchen table sensibility with dedicated volunteers and almost no overhead. The foundation funds cutting-edge research aimed at personalized treatments for kids at every stage of their disease. tay-bandz understands that kids are not just small adults; they need a different kind of care. That care is underfunded and under-recognized.

Tay-bandz is a great organization run by volunteers whose sole goal is to find cures for childhood cancers that were unavailable to them. I am quite honored to be member of the tay-bandz board. The tay-bandz volunteers know too well the multifaceted challenges that face families diagnosed with pediatric cancers and it shows in their organization. The focus is on the medicine and identifying worthy research candidates, particularly those looking into personalized medicine.

One of the frustrations of cancer treatment is that it is very rigid with a set protocol requiring multiple treatment types to fail before one can look outside the protocol for answers. Unlike the protocol, cancers are not one size fits all, and even two people suffering the same cancer respond to treatments differently. With this in mind one important avenue of continued research that benefits from tay-bandz is personalized medicine, where an individuals specific cancer is regenerated outside of the patient, and treated to identify the best treatment for that specific cancer with the goal of identifying the best treatment for that particular patient suffering that particular cancer. These and other research programs are always at the forefront of tay-bandz research sponsorship.

A donation to tay-bandz is really a donation to boots-on-the-ground patient treatment and therewith cancer research. In many instances a donation directly supports the research and treatment of a particular cancer that an individual child is suffering from right now, today. Sadly, because of the cancer treatment protocols these treatments are often towards the end of an already long struggle the family has endured. But because of the research tay-bandz sponsors there is still hope, and the ability to offer hope is an immeasurable reward I receive by working with tay-bandz.

I have read about and supported the Tay-bandz organization since its inception. They are a dedicated group who have supported many families that are distraut with worry and confusion, and have guided these individuals to the information and leaders who can help them.

I have worked with Tay-Bandz since I was in the 7th grade and have seen it grow and touch people all around the world. Tay-Bandz continues to come up with innovative ways to raise money for cancer research while staying connected to its original community and expanding well beyond it! In the past year they have begun to make major headway reaching out to college campuses across the United States. I look forward to working on the new generation board and look forward to helping Tay Bandz grow and conquer the dreams of my good friend who started the foundation. With the help of this charity hopefully one day no child will have to live with cancer.
