AirMed Crew to Make Special Holiday Delivery to Family of Retired Firefighter

Dec 22, 2004 5:00 PM

An AirMed crew from University of Utah Hospital will deliver a $1,000 check today to the family of retired Ogden City firefighter Kent Taylor. AirMed pilots, nurses, paramedics and staff raised the money as part of their annual Sub-For-Santa project and decided to give the money to the Taylor family after learning of Kent's battle with brain cancer.

Taylor, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2003, has received treatment at both University of Utah Hospital and Ogden Regional Medical Center. He is still undergoing chemotherapy treatments but is optimistic after a recent MRI showed no signs of a tumor, according to Wayne Edginton, AirMed chief flight paramedic.

The AirMed crew is expected to land at Brigham City's Mary Christenson Park around noon on Thursday. The crew will be greeted by Taylor and his wife Tracy, as well as their six children, who range in age from 2 to 16 years old.
