Trees of Remembrance: Neighborhood rallies to support family for ninth annual Christmas tree fundraiser
CAROL STREAM – Brittany Valene died in February 2005, just days before her ninth birthday, of Long QT Syndrome, a congenital heart condition that her family and doctors thought was being controlled by medication.
Brittany’s passing weighed heavy on the hearts of many, including her neighbors in Kingsport Ridge.
Wanting to keep the girl’s memory alive, Kingsport Ridge resident Jim Guthrie and several other community members decided to honor her by placing Christmas trees in their front yards.
