Welcome

February 28, 2015, is World Rare Disease Day.

Support Taylor and the millions of people around the globe, including 1 in 10 Americans, who face a rare disease with bravery and resilience. Each person’s story is important to share as we work together to find treatments for these terrible diseases. For more information, please visit http://www.rarediseaseday.org .

From a small group of family and friends who wished to help one young girl, Taylor King, deal with the awful effects of Batten disease, Taylor’s Tale has transitioned into a positive force that advocates for the millions of people worldwide who are affected by rare diseases. We believe that a victory for one is a victory for all.

We’ve contributed to promising research that will help lead to treatments for Batten disease and other rare diseases. While we work on behalf of the one in 10 Americans and the estimated 350 million people whose lives have been tragically touched by a rare disease, we will never lose sight of the individuals represented by those statistics.

The mission that was inspired by the life of one precious girl remains the beacon of Taylor’s Tale to this day, and will continue into the future with your support.
