Friends of the McClelland family have created this page to assist with Ian's hospital bills & funeral expenses.

Ian McClelland died May 17 from injuries he suffered in a car crash. He was 19 years old and left behind his best friend and twin brother, Charlie, his younger brother, Evan, his parents, Karen & Phil, and dogs, Sara and Edison.   Ian's parents are free lance classical musicians.  In addition to being heartbroken with grief & being overwhelmed with the logistics of making funeral & burial arrangements for their son, they are struggling to handle all of the expenses from the hospital, the funeral home, the cemetery plot, and from replacing the family car, which was totaled. 

 Even though Ian suffered for years with juvenile diabetes, he never let it interfere with being there for his family and friends.   He made excellent choices in his young life and had a promising future.  

Friends of the McClellands have created this fund to help defer some of their expenses. We hope to surprise the McClelland family with enough money to pay for at least 35% of the bills they've incurred. And, If 400 people donate $25, we will meet our goal.
