CINCINNATI -- Internet users are pouring out love for a 5-year-old boy from Cincinnati who is battling terminal cancer.
#TeamTaylor is trending nationally on Facebook and locally on Twitter. The hashtag was created for Taylor Grant, a 5-year-old who has been battling stage 4 neuroblastoma since he was two and is being treated at Cincinnati Children's Hospital, according to his mother's Facebook page.

Neuroblastoma is the same rare type of cancer of nerve cells that Leah Still had. (Leah is currently in remission, but she was originally given a 50 percent chance of survival.)
Now, Grant's mother, Ciera, said doctors have only given her son a few months to live.
Friends and family of Taylor and Ciera have advertised fundraisers on social media. The WIZ, 101.1 FM, even promoted a fundraiser for the single mom and her son.
Chelsea North of West Chester, who said she only began following Taylor's story on Facebook a few months ago, created a GoFundMe account "to support Taylor's living expenses."
The fundraising account isn't being used to pay for medical expenses, but rather to make the rest of 5-year-old's life enjoyable.
"Taylor likes to visit the museum, aquarium, Chuck E. Cheese, go to the movies and to the arcades," the GoFundMe account's description says. "His favorite foods are sushi and granola bars. His likes trying new restaurants, playing with trains, and simply living! We started a GoFundMe account to help Taylor enjoy life to the fullest and to assist with his living expenses."
Since April, the account has raised almost $2,000.
Taylor's mom is also raising money by selling tee shirts and hoodies, similar to the "Still Strong" shirts sold by Devon and Leah Still. Money raised by selling Team Taylor gear will also go towards costs of Taylor's living expenses, according to her Facebook page.
