On December, 20, 2011, I lost my best friend, my hero, my dad: Bob Taylor. He was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme in August of 2010. We discovered the brain tumor after a freak bicycle accident while he was in Colorado. He had no prior symptoms. He was given a year to live, and ended up fighting for a good 16 months before he passed. He did everything from chemo and radiation to cyberknife treatments, none of it worked. He stayed strong through it all, and made the most of the time he had left with our family, including myself and my younger sister.
