Dayton TV Host Brings Moms Together to Help Kids With Cancer

By Kevin Eck 

WDTN‘s host of Living Dayton, Sallie Taylor, is doing her part to help the lives of children who are fighting cancer.

Taylor said the idea for her foundation, Moms 4 Miracles, started about six years ago ago when the Leukemia & Lymphoma society of Dayton asked her to compete over 10 weeks in the Man & Woman of the Year campaign. The person who raises the most money for blood cancer research is named Man/Woman of the Year. Taylor took home the title after forming a team of moms she called Moms 4 Miracles and raising $42,000.

“No one should have to fight cancer, especially children,” Taylor told the Dayton Daily News. “What these children and their families go through breaks my heart. It’s an honor and a blessing to help make miracles happen for children with cancer!”


We call children who are fighting cancer our “heroes.” With the proceeds of our golf outing, we have helped pay off medical bills for heroes, helped make their wishes come true, donated to brain cancer research in honor of a hero, and donated to Dayton Children’s Needy Patient Fund for children with cancer. This year, Moms 4 Miracles has committed to raising $25,000 for a new Moms 4 Miracles Chemo Therapy Room as part of a new pediatric cancer treatment floor in the tower currently under construction at Dayton Children’s. In past years, we have donated Nintendo DS and iPad games to the hospital for children to play while undergoing treatment. So, a new Moms 4 Miracles Chemo Room is just perfect. We pray for miracles to happen there!
