Unfortunately, the first of two painfully invasive surgical procedures failed. Now, Little Taylor Rose's only option is for a liver transplant.
Saturday, the community is forming Team Taylor and is throwing her a walk and fundraiser with the help of Lifepoint Church of the Nazarene to raise money for the family to pay for Taylor Rose's medical expenses.
The benefit will be selling Team Taylor t-shirts as well as food and other vendors. A DJ, pony rides, and bounce house will also be there to entertain the entire family.
The walk will take place at 9 a.m. Saturday in the Newton County Board of Education parking lot
The rest of the festivities happens later in the day from noon to 5 p.m. at the church which is located at 5133 Highway 36 in Covington.
