We'd like to ask for your help and support of a family in our community - The Peel family. The Peel family has been part of Montgomery Little League for many seasons. One family member, Taylor Peel, a long time MLL Player, is currently undergoing cancer treatments for a newly diagnosed tumor. Please come out on September 27, 2014, to the Montgomery Fire Station # 51 to support the Peel Family for a blood drive and TShirt Sale fundraiser to benefit Taylor Peel. More information and printable flyers on this event are available below. Thank you for supporting families and friends in our beloved Montgomery community.
We are now sharing Part II of Taylor's Cancer Adventure. A nodule in Taylor's lung decided to grow from December 2013 to June of 2014. It was surgically removed and the results showed that it was indeed cancerous. Taylor will once again go through radiation and chemo. He was diagnosed with Wilms' Tumor Stage I anoplastic four years ago and is now categorized as Wilms' Tumor Stage 4 anoplastic. Anoplastic is the aggressive form of this cancer. His treatment plan is 36 weeks of chemo and about 10 sessions of radiation. Several of his treatments wil be five days in a row and will involve inpatient treatments. Taylor is teaching us all with his strong will, good attitude and fearless determination. His reaction to the news was surprising; he was quiet for a bit and then said he was relieved the cancer was out and lets do this! Please support us with prayers, messages, and visits. Taylor is funny, outgoing, strong, athletic, caring, sympathetic, strong willed. He loves hunting, critters, fishing, baseball, football.
