About Taylor

Taylor has been a patient at Shriners Hospitals for Children — Tampa since she was six weeks old. Taylor was born with osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare genetic condition also known as “brittle bone disease.” As a result, bones are very fragile and break easily, often from minor injuries.

At the Tampa hospital, Taylor receives orthopaedic care, medicine to strengthen her bones and physical therapy.

There’s no stopping this outgoing 9-year-old who charms everyone she meets. Taylor enjoys swimming, cooking with her mom, going to the beach and spending time with friends and family, especially her big sister, Tiffany. An honor student, she loves math and literature.

“We couldn’t have been happier for Taylor seeing how thrilled she was to sing in the chorus with the band,” said Angela, who grew up listening to Foreigner. Taylor told her mom that “if I had to rate it from 1 to 10, I would have to rate it a 1,000!”

Angela called Foreigner’s contributions to the hospital system “incredibly selfless” and praised them for creating a special video for Shriners Hospitals for Children.

“What love they have!” she said. “We are fans for life.”
