After fearlessly battling a brain tumor for 4 1/2 years, Taylor sadly lost her battle to cancer. Seeing Taylor carry herself in such a strong, dignified, confident and positive manner inspired Taylors family to give back in such a way that would honor Taylor’s memory, especially her love of the arts. Taylor’s HeArt Gallery — an art gallery that will benefit A Reason to Survive (ARTS) https://www.facebook.com/AReasonToSurvive?ref=ts&fref=tskids an amazing non-profit that helps “at risk youth”, as well as supporting a network of artists that often do not get enough exposure.
For Taylor, art was a great tool in dealing with the “un-cop able” — it gave her a reason to survive, thrive, and deal with her circumstance in a positive and optimistic way. It was her family’s desire to uphold Taylor’s name and memory by giving hope and inspiration to others through the power of the arts.
