Rhiannon’s Kids Fund


Rhiannon’s Kids provides financial support to Mammoth Hospital pediatric patients who have to travel out of the area for specialized medical care. 
To qualify, patients must first be approved by a Mammoth Hospital Pediatrician who deems their out-of-area care a necessity. Families can then access assistance by submitting completed reimbursement applications along with itemized receipts and proof of appointment(s).

Rhiannon’s Story

teddy bear

Rhiannon Lynn Taylor was born at Mammoth Hospital in the fall of 2009. She was diagnosed at birth with a terminal genetic disorder, Trisomy 18 and transported to the neonatal intensive care unit at Renown Hospital in Reno. Rhiannon lived 138 days before dying from congestive heart failure, a complication of Trisomy 18.

The Taylor family began Rhiannon’s Kids fund after living through the challenges – emotionally, spiritually, and financially – that having a child with a chronic condition involves. They started the fund to honor the brief, but precious, life of their daughter Rhiannon and to help aid other families in similar circumstances.
