Appointment at MD Anderson Confirmed

Today was a good day. After frustration for two days with no scheduled appointment we heard from MD Anderson and on October 26th MD Anderson hospital will meet the most incredible lady on earth.

Let me backtrack quickly, I am Josh Taylor and I married Aly Page in 2006. We have now been married for 5 years and 2 days shy of 3 months. On October 17th we found out through a pathology report that cancer had made a bad decision. breast cancer made a bit of a mistake in choice this time and picked my wife Alyssa Page Taylor, referred to in future posts as HERO, BEST, DREAM WIFE, GODLY WOMAN, satans worst enemy, FRIEND, FUN….you get the picture.
Quickly, Aly graduated 2009 with her bachelors degree, she then obtained her MASTERS degree in marriage and family therapy and is in the 3rd month of her first semester of the Doctorial Program at ULM in Marriage and Family Therapy. Aly’s dad passed away in a car wreck when she was 10. That is the beginning of shaping the most consistent, calm, level headed, hard working woman God has created. Aly has had multiple serious issues in her family that have shaped her into the amazing woman I married, thank you JESUS!
This is the first post in our journey toward kicking cancer in the face. To all the people who will follow this and support us…THANK YOU!

    Doctor Kevin and I will be praying for Aly. God wants her well. Jesus paid a tremendous price for her healing and those stripes He bore will not be in vain. By His stripes, Aly is healed. We bind up fear and speak peace over your mind and heart.
    We love you.

  9. Ally my name is Chelsie Quarles and I am 26 years old and a mother of four Cancer does not discriminate I found out last month in September that I had uterine cancer and after operting they found out it was uterine and ovarian cancer. I just want you to know that I had my surgery and a painful recovery but 3 weeks after the surgery Iam cancer free an its only by the Grace of God. I can tell youits not going to be easy the emotional part is the hardest but God healed me and brought me through it and my walk with God has gotten even closer so just keep your head held high and never forget how powerful prayer can be as well as how supportive and comforting your husband will be. I wish yall the best and yall are in my prayers!God is Great and he has healed you! See you on the survivor list!

  10. By the stripes placed on Jesus’ back, Ally is healed, Psalm 103:1-5, Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name, Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgiveth all thine iniquities, who healeth all thy diseases, who redeemeth thy life from destruction, who crowneth thee with loving-kindness and tender mercies, who satisfieth thy mouth with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Praying for you, James & Sheila Townsend

  11. Aly and Josh, I work for Pilots for Patients and I see people beat cancer all the time. You will beat this…how could you not? You have prayer, support and a wonderful medical team. I’m sure the 26th seems so far away when you want it gone now, but stay strong. Prayers are with you.

  12. Josh, you are so great to Aly. I’m glad that she has such a strong man of God to walk through this process with her. I am praying for both of you and the doctors and your family and that Aly is healed.

  13. Aly & Josh,
    We have been praying since we heard the news on Monday. We won’t stop praying until the cancer is GONE. We are praying with the strong belief that God is faithful and that he will answer our prayers!

    Jake & Anna Stephens

  14. Josh and Aly,

    You are both an inspiration to us all and this test will prove to be a testament to your love for Christ and each other.

    I love you,

    Uncle Jake

  15. Carman has a song that has been out for years called “The Champion”. This song was popular when Jeremy was a very young boy. The last two lines go like this: “Cause Satan is defeated; and Jesus is the CHAMPION!” Josh and Aly, we are champions through the blood of Jesus! Love you so much.

  16. I am praying that God continues to bless Aly, family and love ones with strength, peace, joy and direction in the days ahead! HUGS!!! …Dezzra Mason

  17. We love you. You guys will be in our prayers! God can handle this. I will keep up via the blog.

  18. Josh, I agree with you in that cancer is messing with a solid woman. You will both be lifted up daily in prayer by so many people. Never forget that we serve a God that holds the world in His hands. My heart breaks that Satan chose to attack such incredible people who deserve nothing but wonderful. Love you two,
    Katelyn Kirby Taylor

  19. Josh! God knew exactly who Aly needed when he gave her YOU! He knew what would lie ahead! Amazing… You keep her head up and keep being you. I love you both so much and you both have always meant the world to me… I am of course praying! LOVE ~ Stacy

  20. Josh and Aly, We love you both very much! You have a strong army fighting this with you! Cancer picked the wrong family and friends to mess with, it doesnt stand a chance! Aly is one of the most strongest persons I have ever met. She is so lucky to have you, Josh, by her side. Prayers are being said constantly and God WILL heal our precious Aly!! We love ya’ll, Dewayne Krista John David and Dalton

  21. Well, this confirms what I’ve figured out over the years, the reason why Aly told you “I will” and “I do” over five years ago. YOUR strategy is right on the mark my man, take this devil’s cancer head on! Just like Teddy Roosevelt charging up San Juan Hill, somewhat fearful on the inside, but yet fearless and courageous in every action! I’ve cried every quiet moment all week . Well the crying is over and it’s time to take action! I want to be on your team Bubba!! Pick Me, ooh, ooh, ooh, Pick me! You, Aly, your close others and me know there will be some tough days ahead. But you can rest assured son, there will be an army of God’s people behind you both 24/7!!!! I’m not a guy who shares our family news with a whole lot of folks, but over the week I’ve told anyone who would listen to me about Aly and you. And before I can even ask them to, they tell me ya’ll will be in their prayers and they’re going to put you both on their church’s prayer list/network! What more can you ask for? The cancer is in for a big surprise! Over and Out for now and we love ya both!! Your Out-law Uncle and for-ever grateful golf student, Doug!

  22. Josh and Aly,
    I love you both and as Doug said, you are on every prayer list we can think of! I know that prayer is powerful and that we have God on our side. Stay strong and remember we are with you! Love, Aunt Ann

  23. Amen and Amen…Way to go Josh and
    Aly…you are both fighters. Thank you for keeping us posted as we pray for you on this journey. I know God has big plans for you and the lives that you will touch along the way. We love you so much….Paula, Tommy, Aaron, Jacob, Meredith, Megan and Kyle

  24. Deuteronomy 20:4
    For the LORD your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to give you victory.”

  25. Josh and Aly,
    Our prayers are with you during this fight! A mentor of mine once said that in finding out you have cancer there are many emotions, but in her family they choose only two: Shock and FIGHT! God will see you through this FIGHT! These three verses carried our family through one of the most difficult times we have ever faced, Psalms 46:1, 57:1 and 62:8. I pray they strengthen you. Know and love both sets of your parents!

  26. Josh and Aly,
    You do not know me personally, but I am a friend through the Lord Jesus Christ, our Healer and our Great Physician. I am a cousin in law to Katie Keene (Stephens), and I live in Ohio. She had texted my sisters and I last Friday and told us the news of Aly. You, Aly, my sister in Christ, have been in my prayers daily. You will continue being in my prayers until I hear the news that you have kicked this cancer in the butt! Please feel the peace of our LORD and Saviour as you go into battle against the evils of this sin cursed world and what it has brought to you. Love and prayers, Mistie Breitigam and family.

  27. 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
    22 And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
    Eph 1:20-23 NKJ

    Josh and Aly,
    I like the NKJ wording of this verse, in verse 21 where authority was given to Jesus though his blood and resurrection over “every name that is named”. Cancer IS a name, therefore we claim authority over this cancer in the name of Jesus, and we speak full restoration of health upon Aly’s body. We pray for the favor of God to pour over your family.

  28. “We destroy every proud obstacle that keeps people from knowing God. We capture their rebellious thoughts and teach them to obey Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5

    “…And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith…Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up.” Hebrews 12:1-3


    What a mighty woman of faith you are. You have kept your eyes on Jesus and you have taken your thoughts captive just as the scriptures say to do. For this God has promised to keep you in perfect peace.(Isaiah 26:3) I encourage you to keep your eyes and thoughts fixed on Him! God also says for you who are righteous, your way will not be steep and rough. He says He’ll smooth out the path ahead of you.(Isaiah 26:7) I know it must seem confusing because at this point I’m sure you don’t feel like your way is smooth, but feel that is steep and rough. But we know God is not a man that He can lie (Numbers 23:19), so His living Word IS true. Rest in Him and His promises today. I praise God for you Aly. Michael and I were married on your birthday and my Samuel was born on your and Josh’s anniversary. 2 of our most special family memories do not pass by without thoughts of you and Josh in them. These little things are so special to me.
    Standing with and for you my precious, precious friend. (Ephesians 6:13-14)

    Victory is YOURS in Him!!!

    Love you,

  29. Aly, You may not remember us but Wes and I were leaders in the NMBC Youth Group when you were in high school! You, your sister and Ainsley Beeman had the most BEAUTIFUL smiles!!

May he hold you both during this time!! Josh what an INCREDIBLE husband you are to do this blog for her!! Wes, Renee, Cameron, Alyssa and Emma Pippin

  33. Aly and Josh,

    Karen Sharp

  35. Josh and Aly just to let you know you all are in my thoughts and especially my prayers, I hate that “C” word. It happens to so many people, old and very young. Aly I have always thought you were a very special young lady, with a beautiful smile every time I saw you. I believe with all my heart God will see you through this and with a wonderful loving husband , faimly, friends and most of all God you will make through this. I have asked my friend and church faimly to put you and Josh on their prayer list. . I am praying for you. Love you Pat Jolley

  36. Hi Aly & Josh! My name is Kathy and I’m a almost 26 year survivor of Breast Cancer. I was diagnosed when I was 25. Emily asked for prayer for you and thought I might like to encourage you. I will pray for you and if you ever want to talk. Just let me know. I have been where you are and survived!!I give all the credit to the Lord! He took my hand and walked with me through it. He enabled me to survive so that I can share my story and encourage others. Keep FROGing all the time!!

  37. I don’t know you personally nor do you know me. But I know someone who does who asked me to pray so I just wanted to let you know, I pray and will be for Aly’s complete healing and for Josh’s strength and peace.
    ‘By His stripes you are healed…’

  38. Aly and Josh,
    Don’t know why this happened….don’t need to know why. Don’t know when or or how your healing will come (miraculously or gradually)….don’t need to know when or how. But I do know One who knows it all…and He has it all under control! I also know that we ALL will be right there with you both, praising God and declaring His awesome greatness when you both walk in, stand before the Church and tell us that God has healed you and you are cancer free! Aly, you are an amazing, beautiful lady! Josh, what a wonderful example you are to everyone of what a loving husband should be and how he should care for his wife.

  39. A big hello to a new cancer sister….I just kicked cancer’s butt six months ago!!!! I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer 2 years ago and was given only a 25% chance of beating it…..and I have been healed by GOD!!! I am here for you day or night if you have questions, need uplifting, or if need to shout…ive been there….I have NO doubt that you WILL beat this too….keep your chin up and your heart open and let GOD lead you!!!!! 318-372-2200
