A fund to help young Lacey Holsworth of St. Johns, Michigan cover the medical expenses associated with her ongoing cancer battle.
On December 28, 2011 Lacey Holsworth of St. Johns, MI. was diagnosed with neuroblastoma, a form of cancer originating in the nerves. Lacey had two tumors, one in her abdomen roughly the size of a football and one on that wrapped around her spine. These tumors would paralyze Lacey a couple days later. Without treatment Lacey’s parents were told that she would only have about two weeks to live. After the first few rounds chemotherapy the tumor around her spine had miraculously dissolved into soft tissue.
About a month later the Michigan State Basketball team came to the hospital for a visit and spent time with Lacey. When she was asked whom she would like to stay she pointed to Adreian Payne, because of his big smile. Over the last three seasons the bond between Lacey and Adreian has captivated the hearts of basketball fans alike. Lacey was able to fight through her treatment so she could be there with Adreian as he was honored on senior night and later to cut down the nets following MSU’s Big Ten Tournament Championship. To say the least Lacey’s story has been incredibly inspirational for those who have followed it.
This fundraiser is in place to help raise financial support for Lacey and her family as she continues her ongoing battle with cancer, beating it one dance step at a time.
