The Founders:

Taylor and Jim Carol

The Mission:

Use Technology & Innovation to Help Children with Cancer

GameChanger is a nonprofit that benefits sick kids and the environment by using proceeds from the resale of donated materials to financially support children and families suffering from cancer.

GameChanger helps corporations by providing technology leaders with alternatives to managing excess electronics & inventory.

The Story:

In May of 2006, the Carol’s lives changed forever…..their son Taylor was diagnosed with a rare form of Leukemia and was given two weeks left to live. After soul searching and seeking guidance from experts, the family decided to move Taylor to the Children’s Hospital of Seattle. It was there that Taylor began the fight for his life.

Throughout Taylor’s long battle, he was forced into isolation where he would spend months alone and he quickly developed a deep love for video games. Video games served as an outlet, as they helped him ‘feel like a kid again,’ allowed him to communicate with peers and distracted him from the harsh realities of his situation.

Once Taylor was well again, he and his dad founded GameChanger, a nonprofit built upon his inspiring survival story and dedicated to helping others through their battles against pediatric cancer.
