Preston James Steele-Alston died on 10 August 2003 at just 2 ½ years of age.
Preston had been suffering pneumonia from a simple virus, which caused an acute lung injury. This allowed a secondary bacterium to invade his body causing an overwhelming sepsis.
Preston was promptly put on life support but died a few short hours later.
Preston’s family and friends started the Fund in his name, so that other families could avoid the tragedy of losing a child.
Today the Preston James Fund continues on this mission, thanks to our many generous supporters who help us raise life-saving funds.
