GoFundMe Setup for Family of Clyde Teen Who Passed Away


CLYDE, TX — A teen from Clyde, Texas passed away Wednesday after a battle with a rare medical condition and a GoFundMe has been setup to help his family defray medical expenses.

Quinten Siegfried, 14, passed away after he had a reaction to a medication and developed Steven Johnson’s Syndrome. Siegfried died on January 24, 2024.

According to the Mayo Clinic, Steven Johnson’s Syndrome is a rare and serious disorder of the skin and mucous membranes. About 10% of people who contract Steven Johnson’s Syndrome die as a result.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the family with medical expenses. According to the GoFundMe, Siegfried spent a few months in the ICU because the disease causes severe damage to his lungs, which required a lung transplant. Due to his medical condition at the time, he was denied. At 14, he required oxygen and a wheelchair to move around.

The Clyde Little League, something Siegfried enjoyed was baseball, has dedicated this season to Siegfried’s memory.
