Taylor’s defying odds waiting for heart transplant

THE fear of losing a child at any moment is a burden no parent should live with.

Taylor spends her days in isolation at Ronald McDonald House in Melbourne, where she has been receiving palliative care from the Royal Children’s Hospital for the past two and a half years.

“Everyone who knows Taylor just adores her. She has that infectious kind of personality that people are just drawn to.”
