LINTON, Ind. (WTHII) - Madi Moore, of Linton, lost the battle to Grafts vs. Host disease on July 15.
Moore was a 17-year-old student at Linton-Stockton High School. She beat AML leukemia in July 2018 and was returning to life as a normal teenage girl until a few months ago. Doctors diagnosed her with graft vs. host disease. She passed away at Riley Hospital for Children at 7:30 a.m. this morning with her family by her side.
Linton-Stockton High School is hosting a prayer circle on July 16 at 12:30 p.m. at the flag pole in front of the high school. Community members can also support Madi's family through a go fund me page created by Heather Graves- Rader to help cover medical expenses.
"It's the least we can do for a family who gives so much," Graves-Rader says.
Numerous efforts are in place throughout the community to support the family including a car show on July 21 from 1-4 p.m. at Humphreys Park in Linton. Jiffy Treet in Linton is also hosting a fundraiser for the family on Thursday.
Funeral arrangements have not yet been announced.
Tough day for the Wabash Valley. We lost a special young lady, Madi Moore. They say the good ones, die young. So true for Madi. She touched more lives than she’ll ever know https://t.co/PfAN2EZl6u
