Taylor Delz was burned on 80% of his body at the age of 14 when a gas can exploded. He was a freshman at the time. Taylor spent one year on the burn unit, and three months outpatient before returning to school halfway through his sophomore year. He was able to catch up to his class, due in large part to the medical staff, teachers, friends, and family who supported him along the way. He went on to graduate from Texas A&M University and now has a successful career in real estate in his hometown.
