Rhiannon’s Kids

Pediatrician, Dr. Kristin Collins

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 in partnership with the Mammoth Hospital Foundation after living through the challenges – emotional, spiritual, and financial – that having a child with a chronic condition involves. This fund honors the brief, but precious, life of Rhiannon Taylor and helps families in similar circumstances.

The Rhiannon’s Kids Fund provides financial support to Mammoth Hospital pediatric patients who must travel out of the area for specialized medical or dental care. We are supported entirely by community donations and aim to offer financial support to all pediatric patients in need.
