Kelsey was hit by a car while riding her family's ATV. Her parents, Kevin and Michaela weren't prepared for their 15 year-old daughter to pass away. After two brain surgeries in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit at Sanford Children's Hospital, they thought she was on her way to recovery. Unfortunately, she passed away. Her parent's agreed that Kelsey would be able to give life to others by being an organ donor. She is now living on in others and has saved between 60 and 100 lives by donating her organs.
