We are the friends and family of the Sorensons, raising money for medical bills, lost wages with time off work, funeral costs, and trying to support this wonderful family in a tangible way.

We all feel helpless watching this story unfold, and contributing to this fund would be incredibly appreciated by the Sorensons and those that love them.

Kellan was a spunky, hilarious, 'sassy-pants' little boy who has been on this earth a mere three-and-a-half years. He is loved deeply by those who have been blessed enough to know him and we are all devastated by the past few days of events.

On Wednesday, December 16th, Kellan was his usual self without any signs of what was to come. On Thursday, December 17th, Kellan began to spike a fever of 103 degrees, he began to vomit, and have seizures. His parents, Brad and Becky, took Kellan to Children's Hospital where they began to test Kellan and give him the best care possible. They officially diagnosed him with bacterial meningitis, and Kellan's condition rapidly declined. In a matter of 24 hours, life has forever changed for everyone in Kellan's family.

On Saturday, December 19th,  Kellan passed away as this very rare, very aggressive infection was too much to overcome. Brad and Becky need our support and our love, and they want everyone to hold their kids a little closer right now. Suffering the most unimaginable loss right before Christmas time, they need us to all rally and show them how much this family is loved.

The Sorensons will have massive medical bills and funeral costs to address at a time when money seems so trivial. 

It would mean so much to us all if you donated to the Sorensons.  Grief cannot be relieved but if we can alleviate financial expenses, it will take a small load off Brad and Becky's shoulders. If you are local to the Milwaukee area, there is a 'meal train' site set up to help as well.  https://www.mealtrain.com/trains/w7dkge

Thank you!!

Sending prayers to your family. We lost my 22 year old brother almost eight years ago to a rare form of meningitis. We did not know (and neither did the doctors) that was the illness he had. Thinking of you and praying for peace.

I am so sorry for your loss ! He looks like an amazing little boy. He is now sitting on God's lap. My son Brandon also contracted this when he was only 5 months old. I took him to the emergency room and and sent me home and said that it was an ear infection. I went home and this overwhelming feeling came over me saying they are not right. 4 hours later I marched back in to the emergency room and demanded to see my doctor. It was bacterial meningitis, and it would have taken his life. It all happened so fast. My heart goes out to you and your family.
