Benefit planned for Saugerties teen recovering from cancer

Sunday, Feb. 9: Until November 2018, Taylor Block, now 16, was a typical teen who loved softball, skiing and the Jonas Brothers. But then she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, a devastating bone cancer. After enduring over 15 surgical procedures to correct damage that weakened one of her legs, she is hopeful that she will be able to attend prom in May. She came back home to Saugerties three weeks ago after a 12-week stay at Sloan-Kettering in the intensive care unit.
