On March 19th at 12:30pm Alida and Leah are putting on an assembly at Prairie Waters Elementary School. They want to share with students and their community what they have learned, how to take action and make an impact.

Through this club they have organized a bake sale at their school on February 28th, & March 1st as well as a Loonie Drive March 11-15th. They even have some teachers who may shave their head and Alida’s Oma has agreed to shave her head as well!

We lost our daughter, Taylor Marie Bell to Acute Myeloid Leukemia on December 23, 2013. She was just 20 yrs. old. Taylor was treated at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre here in Calgary. The doctors and nurses were wonderful and they did their best to help us all through this tragic 8 month ordeal. At a time when most young adults are becoming independent, going away to school, choosing career paths, and maybe considering marriage and a family. Young adults affected by cancer are, instead, coming to terms with chemotherapy, radiation, prospects of infertility, and potentially moving back to live with their parents. This, as you can imagine, can be a very isolating experience during an already traumatic time. In Taylor’s memory, we are committed to helping other families who may be facing a similar situation. We see ourselves as advocates for this wonderful yet vulnerable and sometimes misunderstood group of young people between the ages of 18-39 years.
We were also invited to share our story in the Alberta Cancer Foundation magazine “Leap”, a publication about Alberta’s cancer free movement. https://myleapmagazine.ca/2015/09/01/staying-strong-for-taylor/
