The Rayhon family

George and Mary Rayhon faced the unimaginable when their grandson Logan was diagnosed with stage four Wilms Tumor. To show their appreciation to the team that saved Logan’s life, the Rayhons made a generous donation to Driscoll Children’s Hospital.

Their gift will help other children, like Logan, receive the lifesaving care and treatments they need from Driscoll Children’s Hospital.

Because of your love for your grandchild or grandchildren, Driscoll Children’s Hospital can lovingly take care of all children.
