In loving memory of Kegan, Bracken, and Mearan, the Pohl Children's Foundation desires to provide scholarships to organizations that provided help and services to the Pohl children during their lifetimes AND also to children with similar interests, circumstances, disabilities, and abilities.
The Pohl Children's Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit memorial foundation for Mearan Ruby-Rea Pohl, Bracken Kyle Pohl, and Kegan Michael Pohl. All three children passed away from Spinocerebellar ataxia type 7 (SCA7), a rare genetic disease. Their father, Kyle Pohl, also has SCA7 and is considered terminal. Our foundation currently provides a 12-week family therapy session, provides families the opportunity to attend Mounted Eagles therapeutic equine therapy at no cost, offers a special Christmas event for grieving families each year, sends out a series of six healing kits to children who have endured the loss of a family member, sunshine kits to children with life-threatening disease, gift cards to families to support travel between treatments and doctor visit, and we are currently building pediatric hospice and palliative care services within a four-county area in central Minnesota.
