James Kyle Bruton

Kyle’s larger than life personality touched thousands of people and taught lessons that will not soon be forgotten on life, unconditional love and what is truly important in this world. In 2010, at just eleven years old, Kyle passed away from complications associated with a rare genetic disorder, Chromosome 18q-. His family created the Kyle Bruton Foundation to help other children and families in his memory.
