WATERTOWN, MN For three years, Brian Taylor of Watertown has struggled with renal cell carcinoma, ever since being diagnosed with it in 2006.
Renal cell carcinoma is the most common type of kidney cancer in adults, responsible for approximately 80 percent of cases.
Together with his wife, Holly (Jacobson) Taylor, and their daughter, Ava, by his side, Brian continues to fight the disease.
Recently, that struggle was made worse when Brian’s ability to work was diminished, according to friends.
“Brian’s faith and love for his family have driven him forward during this difficult time,” commented friend Angela Doughty.
Brian has remained active in service to his church, Watermark Community Church in Watertown. Only recently has he had to reduce his hours worked as the intensity of the medical treatment progresses.
Benefit is set Sunday
Friends of the Taylors have organized a benefit in their honor. The benefit will include a pasta dinner and silent auction. The cause has been well-received by many area businesses who have donated numerous items for the silent auction as well as many food items for the dinner. Please attend this event to assist the Taylors in their rising medical costs.
The event will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Sunday, March 8 at the Watertown City Hall, 309 Lewis Ave. S., Watertown.
For those who would like to send a tax-deductible donation to assist the family, send check or money order to their fund:
