How it Started

In May of 2006, the Carol’s lives changed forever. Their son Taylor was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia and was given two weeks to live. After soul searching and seeking guidance from experts, the family decided to move Taylor to the Children’s Hospital of Seattle. It was there that Taylor began the fight for his life.

The Carol family acknowledges that it was both the kindness of strangers and Taylor’s video games that sustained him with joy and hope during his darkest days, and they decided they wanted to pass that hope on to other kids struggling with debilitating illnesses and injury.

Today and beyond.

How it's going.
