Taylan Andrew Rawlinson was our beautiful seven year old boy who was sadly taken away from us on 19th August 2009. He was diagnosed with a very rare incurable and inoperable brain tumour located in the brain stem called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) on 24th October 2008.
It was so frustrating over the 10 months after Taylan was diagnosed that no one was able to give us any answers or provide that breakthrough we so desperately needed. The price we had to pay was losing our beautiful and precious baby boy. We will never go back to being a `normal'' family again as Taylan is no longer with us. We miss him so much and the pain will never go away - nor will he ever be forgotten. But we feel we cannot allow this to continue and if one day an answer or cure is found, whilst it will be too late for us it may be just in time for another family. We need to start somewhere. So with the help of friends and family we founded Taylan's Project in January 2010.
