Fight For Kai

Kai Lermer, a 16 year old standout running back, basketball and track athlete at Waukesha North High School was enjoying his first day of spring break with friends when he suddenly and unexpectedly collapsed. We soon were informed that Kai had a prexisting heart condition which lead to an open heart surgery, Kai was later transported to children's hospital where he was put into a medically induced coma. Unfortunately after a week of harsh battles and additional surgeries, we were informed that Kai would later be taken off life support. On Wednesday, April 3rd, Kai passed away peacefully surrounded by all of his loved ones, please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers

To support Kai and the Lermer Family we ask that any donation you are able to provide is highly appreciated.
