What’s Your Why: Meet the Messick Family

The Messick Family knows Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City well. Rob Messick is a Swift Transportation employee working in Customer Service. His son Taylor, now 15 years old, was diagnosed with CHARGE syndrome as an infant. The condition affects his eyes, ears, and heart.

Taylor has had sixteen surgeries and procedures at Primary Children’s Hospital. In that time, the family came to know the team and staff at Primary Children’s Hospital on a first-name basis. The family says that the personal connections with the staff was one of the most significant parts of their experience at Primary Children’s Hospital.

Funds raised through Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals support programs like Child Life at local children’s hospitals. Your contribution to your local CMN Hospital ensures that kids like Taylor receive the care they need in a welcoming and comfortable environment.
