LINTON, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — After a long battle with Leukemia, and complications from a bone marrow transplant, a Linton teen died Monday.
Madi Moore was surrounded by family and friends when she passed away at 7:30 a.m. Monday.
The high school student was diagnosed with Leukemia in January of 2018.
She beat the cancer after a bone marrow transplant, but was later diagnosed with Graft Versus Host Disease.
She loved volleyball and being there for her teammates, and provided an inspiration for the Wabash Valley in doing so.
Just last year, we sat down with Moore, her friends, family and volleyball coaches to talk about her battle back from Leukemia.
I really thought I was gonna like it, so when I tried out, I made the team, and I just fell in love with the sport.”Madi Moore talking to WTWO/WAWV about her love of volleyball
There will be a “cruise in for a cause” fundraiser for her family from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Humphreys Park in Linton.
