Sweet Sixteen

By Laura Edwards

birthday cakeTomorrow (August 19) is Taylor’s 16th birthday. In honor of my little sister’s Sweet Sixteen, I’m asking my readers to do at least one of the following:

  • Leave a birthday message for Taylor in the comments below; I’ll share each one with her.
  • Tell at least one person about Batten disease (learn more here).
  • Like Taylor’s Tale on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
  • Wear something purple on Tuesday. Tell friends why you’re wearing purple (the color for Taylor’s Tale) and post a photo on social media with a link to this blog.
  • Make a gift to Taylor’s Tale to support our efforts on behalf of millions like Taylor fighting a rare disease. All gifts are 100 percent tax-deductible. Donate here.
  • Go for a run and dedicate your miles to Taylor, who once ran two 5K races after losing her vision to Batten disease (her courage inspired me to run a half marathon blindfolded last year, and I just kicked off a quest to run a race in all 50 states). Share a post about your run for Taylor in the comments below and on social media.

Happy early birthday to the best sister in the world. I love you, T!
