Ann Taylor is a single mom of 2 boys, Casey who is 16 years old and Christian that is 10 years old.  Ann has been battling melanoma cancer for 5 years now.  In late September of this year, Ann's sister, Tammy took her to the hospital to have emergency surgery to remove a large tumor from her brain. Unfortunately a few days later, the doctors did a CT scan and found two more masses.  She immediately started three weeks of radiation and as is common for this type of treatment Ann lost her hair in the process.  The treatments didn't stop there; in mid-November she started Chemotherapy. You always hope and pray for the best in these situations but the doctors are saying Ann could only have another 5-6 years to live.  Being the dedicated and loving mother that she is, Ann has set a personal goal to fight to live at least 8 more years in order to see her youngest son graduate from high school.

 

Ann was recently able to return to work. She takes one day off a week for her chemotherapy treatment but is determined to carry on with her normal life. She has been blessed with family, friends and great support from her church. A woman from Ann's church wrote, "Ann is always positive and has a smile on her face. She is a kind and caring person".

 

Union Bank's Magic Moments program is so honored to help provide Ann and her boys with a little magic this holiday season.  Ann was surprised with a Nextbook tablet that would be easy to carry with her and use while going through treatments, a DVD movie for her to enjoy, gloves to help keep her warm this winter and candles. For a fun night out the family can enjoy restaurant gift cards, movie passes and popcorn.  To capture some memories of this loving family they have a photo session from Nellie Smith photography.   

 

The boys are avid Play Station players and received a new controller and game.  Casey also received U-Stop gift cards which will help for his trips from Southwest High School to Northeast High School for his ROTC program.  Christian also received an iPod mini and a gift card to iTunes for his listening pleasure.
