Treatment 6 of 12 (9/6/2012)Posted: 09/06/2012
As you may have read in my previous post, I requested prayers for my 3rd cousin from Tennessee — 16 years old Taylor Filorimo (Tay). Tay battled Renal Cell Carcinoma for three years. Tay passed away yesterday at 12:54pm. She was at peace and was surrounded by family and Love.
While I never met Tay personally, I did a lot of Praying for her over these past months and I spent time learning about her from her Facebook postings. I felt a connection with her given that we are both cancer victims and that we are family. Tay has endured a lot during her fight. Like any cancer patient Tay spent a lot of time in the children’s cancer center. Unlike most cancer patients a significant portion of this time was spent visiting and Loving the other children. She had a huge heart and opened it up to all the other children fighting this ugly disease. And she Loved to Love them every chance she had.
While I am saddened by Tay’s passing I am greatful that she is not suffering and is now in heaven with our LORD. Please join me in praying for Tay’s family — that they will find peace and Love during this sad time.
This treatment marks the half-way point for chemo for me. I’ve been lucky managing the side-effects and lucky to rebound from the treatments in a relative short time. And the side-effects have not been too debilitating! I will spend this weekend sleeping and resting and hopefully make it back to being productive on Monday. And then feeling a little better with each passing day up to the Treatment 7 of 12.
Thank you all for your continued prayers and support.
God Bless Tay’s family and friends.
