Born on August 10, 2000, Kellen was taken from his family and friends at the tender age of 14, on January 19, 2015. He had suffered from a glioblastoma brain tumor.
“Kellen was a bright light to all who knew him,” his mother says. “Through his illness and treatment we saw a transformation in him, where he taught and inspired us and others through his example. He chose love over fear. He shared unconditional love with everyone. He taught us to celebrate the gift of life and find joy through sharing jokes and laughter. We move forward, inspired to live the lessons he taught us, and we continue to honor his spirit.”
