Buying a rainbow loom bracelet from Taylor Breimhorst and her group of friends called Taylor's Warriors means you're making a difference.
When Taylor was 6, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was removed, and returned at age 7. The second time she had radiation to remove it. Now, 15 months "tumor free," she'll have to be under watch for the rest of her life.
Now, Taylor is raising money for a charity called the Pinky Swear Foundation that started with a 9-year-old boy named Mitch who had bone cancer. When he learned other kids near him in the hospital may not get much for Christmas, he emptied his savings account and left the money under the pillows of fellow patients. He made his dad swear to carry on the tradition after his death.
Taylor is planning to do the Pinky Swear Kids Triathlon in Minneapolis in August. Last year, she raised $1,000, and this year she's already up to $850 with several months to go.
"She is my hero," her mother Denielle Breimhorst said. She is an amazing child, not many people can say they met their hero. I gave birth to mine."
Taylor and her warriors are holding a silent auction and pancake breakfast this Saturday at Applebee's in Bloomington on Lyndale -- proceeds go to the Pinky Swear Foundation. There's a lot to bid on including an autographed piece of Jeff Gordon's car.
