Written by Paul Daniels, Cornea Transplant Recipient, Husband, and Father

It was late June, 2010, when the poison ivy rash spread from my torso and arms to my forehead and left cheek. By the time I realized that this rash was different, the shingles had already begun attack my optic nerve and left eye socket. A journey that brought deep clarity and understanding of an all too familiar phrase, “You don’t know how much something means to you until it is gone” had begun.

In 2010, a beautiful memorial garden was built in memory of Taylor Storch. Since the garden was created, it has been a peaceful place where individuals come to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in this small oasis.

Last year, Taylor's Gift Foundation launched a Brick Paver campaign that offered individuals and companies the opportunity to purchase bricks and place engraved messages on the pavers that would create a beautiful brick walkway through the garden.

The campaign was an immense success and hundreds of engraved brick pavers were placed in the garden late last year.

A note from Taylor's Gift Foundation: In honor of National Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month, we are re-sharing this beautiful story written by Denni Cheney, who is the mother of Morgan, a young lady diagnosed with cystic fibrosis who received a double-lung transplant. Read about her inspiring story below! 


This story feels like a dream and I’m still wondering if the reality of it will ever really sink in. 

It began on February 1, 1990 when a beautiful baby girl, named Morgan, was born to two loving parents, who were young and excited about becoming new parents.  Never did they think about what the next 26 years would bring.  As we took our beautiful baby Morgan home from the hospital, we knew something was wrong, but had no idea what is was.  We took her to five different doctors and they had no idea either.
