Taylor Bell Memorial Fundraiser @ 4th Spot Kitchen and Bar
Oct 12 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

We are getting organized for our 5th Annual Taylor Bell Memorial Fundraiser which is being held October 12th, 2019. It is hard to believe we have hit the 5 year mark! This event has been so successful thanks to the wonderful donations we have received over the last 4 yrs. We have managed to raise over $60,000 so far to benefit Young Adult Cancer Canada and The Tom Baker Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Clinic. To learn more, please visit our website.

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/
