ROBERT HORRY’S DAUGHTER DIES FROM RARE DISEASE

The teen daughter of former Laker Robert Horry has died. Ashlyn Horry died on the morning of June 14 at Texas Children’s Hospital. She was 17.

“I want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers,” Robert Horry told the Los Angeles Times this week. “It means so much to our family.”

Ashlyn was born with a rare, genetic disorder called 1p36 Deletion syndrome, a condition caused by a missing part of chromosome 1.

1p36 Deletion Syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects one of the most vital parts of a human’s DNA. The short arm (p) of Chromosome 1 (the largest human chromosome that accounts for 8 percent of a person’s DNA) in band 36 is missing in people with this condition. This causes problems with both physical and mental development. Other symptoms include seizures as well as deficiencies in both the hearing and vision departments (Source).
