ABOUT US

We are a group of friends and family who are committed to “making a difference no matter how small” in memory of our girl, Kelsey Rebecca Kittleson. Kelsey’s illness and passing profoundly impacted all of us who knew and loved her. We fought alongside her as she battled to live like a normal teenager, shared in her experiences, both the amazing and heartbreaking, held her and comforted her as she passed from this world, and promised we would take the lessons we learned from this journey and make that difference.  

 

Kelsey’s Story

It was August 27, 2015, at the age of 14, and two weeks before Kelsey’s freshmen year was to start, that doctors found a large brain tumor diagnosed as Glioblastoma multiforme. Kelsey was defiant throughout her battle and fought with stubbornness and pride until the very end. She passed away July 8, 2017 just five days shy of her 16th birthday, at home, surrounded by her mother, father, sister, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, all who loved her so. As her parents we knew that after we lost our girl, we would find a way to both give meaning to what Kelsey endured and help other families facing the unimaginable. We promised.
