In May I traveled to Texas to interview former British Prime Minister Tony Blair for “A Conversation with a Living Legend,” an event benefiting The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. While I was there, I was lucky to meet an incredibly inspiring young patient named Taylor. I was heartbroken when I recently heard that Taylor’s cancer has come back.
But there is a truly moving story at Taylor’s school in Arlington, Texas. Her classmates at Martin High School have put together a lip dub video to raise money for cancer research on Taylor’s behalf. The students sold pledges for one penny per view of the lip dub on YouTube. After the pledged amount of views has been reached, the students will collect the pledges and donate the funds to The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in honor and support of Taylor.
