The family & friends of Taylor Watkins are uniting to raise money to help with his battle against sarcoma. Please show your support!

Taylor is a cancer survivor. He had hodgkins Lymphoma as a kid at 11 years old. He is now 27 years old, a very bright and talented young man who just graduated from Penn State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Ceramics. He has just accepted a full scholarship for a masters degree in Ceramics with a reputable university and is scheduled to start in August. He unfortunately has to pass on this opportunity to fight his cancer battle. He felt a sharp pain last weekend and drove himself to the hospital, and the doctors said he had to have an appendectomy. During the surgery, the doctors said they discovered a tumor and took biopsies. The tests came out positive and he was diagnosed yesterday with High Grade Malignant Sarcoma in the omentum & peritaneum with atyipcal neulear features (very high division....vimentin, which his doctor said is a rare kind of cancer). This is a secondary cancer to an unknown primary (meaning the primary cancer has metastasized) His cancer is rapidly spreading and the oncologist said that if untreated, he only has 1 year to live. He already experiences extreme pain but only has medication to last 5 more days. His mom, Lisa, is by his side and will take him back to Florida this weekend where he can be around family. Taylor does not have medical insurance and is in urgent need of financial assistance. Because of this, we ask for your support to help Taylor get the proper attention, treatment and medication that he needs. On behalf of Taylor Watkins, we sincerely thank you for your donations, thoughts and prayers.
