Taylor Matthews was diagnosed with cancer when she was in 6th grade at Seely Place. For 5 years she battled and lost her fight as a junior at EHS. When she was diagnosed she founded tay-bandz, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding pediatric cancer research. Over the 5 years Taylor's happiest times were the days she was was able to go to school. Taylor never wanted to be considered a kid with cancer... but just wanted to be normal. We thank all the wonderful teachers, staff in the Edgemont School district and in particular Nancy Taddiken and the amazing Edgemont community for making Taylor's life so happy.
