Makenna was 13 years old and an 8th grader at the Gates Chili Middle School. On January 10, 2017 she died by suicide from her attempt two days after Christmas. We are just devastated by her loss. She was a shining star in our lives and still is.
To bring hope to others while keeping her memory alive... Kenna's Fight will be

And raising awareness about mental health and suicide prevention.
It is our mission at Kenna's Fight to raise awareness about Mental Health & Suicide Prevention.
Our Vision is that one day mental health issues are spoken about as easily as people speak about their physical health. Mental health issues do not discriminate. Nearly one in five teens in the United States will suffer from mental illness.
