In loving memory of Kaylee

Donation protected
In the early morning of August 27th, the Gansberg family received a knock on their door by the local police that would change their lives forever...

They were informed that their daughter - Kaylee Gansberg - a 21-year-old who attended Western Michigan University, was fatally struck by a drunk driver while crossing the street in a hit-and-run. Kaylee's parents, Michele and Keith, and their son, Alex, devastatingly have to mourn the loss of a daughter and sister.

Kaylee Ann was a shining star — she set the world on fire and her bright light always shone through. She was a young, charismatic girl with so much life to live, places to see, and dreams to accomplish. The world is a little less bright without her in it, especially for her family, friends, and anyone who was lucky enough to have met her.

As we all mourn and grieve the tragic loss of our Kaylee, we ask for any donation to help the Gansberg family cover her tuition, hospital expenses, and any other unexpected costs that arise. No donation is too small.

Hold your loved ones a little extra close and live every day to its fullest — that is what Kaylee would have wanted. And please continue to keep the Gansberg family in your prayers.

Thank you to everyone for your support.

Aria & Anielle (Kaylee's cousins)
