Wesley M-D.

Samantha’s and Taylor’s son Wesley was born on March 16, 2015. He is fighting a rapidly growing cancer of the brain and spinal cord, and is on a ventilator and breathing tube. Yet his pluck and personality are such that they “prove there is great beauty in life,” says his mother. “Wes has a golden smile and an old soul that rival each other. For someone who has experienced all that he has, Wes will never let you know about his pain. He just gives you that knowing smile that shoots right to your soul.”

Samantha and Taylor would like to thank “Seattle Children’s all the way, especially the brain tumor team (we call them our Gold Girls), Procure at Northgate, UW Medicine, the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, and the Run of Hope Seattle.”
