Taytem

Taytem had a great year!

December 1, 2017

It’s always nice to get a great update from our past recipients, so this one from Taytem’s mom made us smile from ear to ear.

Taytem has been doing great! She started preschool and absolutely loves it! She has a best friend named Sophia who also had a bone marrow transplant, though hers was a result of having cancer. They love each other so much and are the best of friends. She welcomed four baby cousins this year and is so excited to have another on the way!

Fortunately, Taytem has been pretty healthy this year. She's had a cold here and there, and took a big fall on her swing set at home, fracturing her humorous bone. She was in a sling for about a month, but she's one tough cookie! The family will travel to Minnestoa in February for her three-year post-transplant check-ups, and to see about the possibility of surgery to correct her hip dysplasia and knock knee.

Overall, it's been a great year for this "sweet, sassy, beautiful girl," her mom said, adding "She is so much fun to be around and is such a character. Thank you so much for keeping up with her and her story. Means so much to us."

Sending positive thoughts and well wishes to Taytem for a happy, healthy 2018!
