TAY-BANDZ INC
June 30, 2014

Tay-Bandz was started by my friend Taylor when we were so young that we did not honestly know what cancer meant. When I think of Taylor all I can remember is the everyday kid things we used to do. The truth is, Taylor was far from an everyday kid. Taylor was an extraordinary kid who had a dream and never quit. Being a part of Tay-Bandz allows me to keep living Taylor's dream and fighting for her cause. Year over year Tay-Bandz continues to out due itself with new ideas to raise money for pediatric cancer research and reach new audiences. The foundation has supporters who are as young as Taylor was when she was diagnosed and and people who have many more years of experience with the disease and the will to fight against it. Tay-Bandz will be a part of my life for many years to come and I look forward to fighting for Taylor's dream "one day, no child will have to live with cancer."

TAY-BANDZ INC
November 10, 2012

Tay-Bandz was founded by my best friend Taylor Matthews. Her greatest wish was that one day, no child would have to live with cancer. When Taylor created the foundation i thought it was great. On the day that Taylor died, i knew one of many ways to keep her dreams alive would be through Tay-Bandz. Since Tay-Bandz was created i have been a part of many different events and fundraisers. Pediatric cancer is a disease which not only effects the person who is diagnosed with it but if effects everyone around them. My friend taylor made it effect everyone in the most positive way cancer could effect a person. This organization continues to come up with innovative ideas for events and ways to spread the word throughout the united states about pediatric cancer so that it receives the attention in the medical world it so desperately needs. This organization is unlike any other nonprofit i have worked with. It takes the power of kids helping kids to an entirely new level. One day, i hope this foundation can help make Taylor's dream come true.
