A Beautiful Reason To Celebrate


We last caught up with Canada-based TV anchor Tamara Taggart almost exactly one year ago, and we were blown away by everything this young wife, mother and professional had under her belt. Between a beautiful family, booming career and magazine-worthy home, she certainly had a lot to be thankful for. This year, Tamara has even more reason to celebrate—she recently reached the end of her three-year cancer medication regimen! She toasted the auspicious occasion with a gorgeous soirée, and is kindly sharing many of the memories with us today.

Bring us up to speed on what you’ve been up to since last April.
I can’t believe it’s been a year; time flies! This past year has been huge for me. I have grown so much—I feel wiser, stronger and happier. Last November I was able to cross something off my bucket list: I gave a TEDx talk (you can see it here) called “Two Conversations That Changed My Life.” In it, I compare the conversation I had with doctors when they told me my son Beckett has Down syndrome to the conversation I had with doctors when they told me I had cancer. I consider myself an advocate for my son and others with special needs, and giving this talk gave me a lot of confidence—I feel like it really set the tone for me and the positive influence I want to have. The response has been great and has started new conversations and friendships. Since we last spoke, I have enjoyed some wonderful adventures with my kids and husband. We went to Disneyland—a dream come true for my littles! It’s been a good year, for a number of reasons.
