Bre’s Story

Site created on December 27, 2018

Around 8:30, on December 27th, Bre's friend went into her room and found her unresponsive and barely breathing. She immediately called 911 and Bre was taken to the hospital where she was admitted to the ICU, sedated & intubated, and doctors began working up a diagnosis. After a CT scan and hours of testing, they have determined she has the H1N1 flu and meningitis. George stayed at the hospital with her in San Diego for a long time,  but her condition worsened and worsened.   

She fought her illness with strength but, passed on December 28th, 2018. She will be survived by her four siblings and parents.  She fought strong and lived a life worth noting in the books. We are so incredibly honored to have known this wonderful human being.
