Ashlyn Horry, the 17-year-old daughter of former NBA player Robert Horry, died today from â€œsevere respiratory issues and a host of other complications requiring a six month stay in Texas Childrens Hospitalâ€™s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,â€ according to a report posted on Black Sports Online.
Ashlyn underwent numerous tests and multiple surgeries, according to the report, and nearly died on several other occasions. She was eventually diagnosed with the 1p36 Deletion Syndrome, a rare chromosome disease that is characterized by intellectual disability, delayed growth, seizures and respiratory problems.
Former Lakers star and current ESPN analyst Magic Johnson offered condolences on his Twitter account.
“My thoughts go out to Robert Horry and his family as they deal with the tragic loss of his daughter Ashlyn,” Johnson tweeted.
