There's a sad update concerning a little girl featured on Faces of Kansas City this summer.
After battling serious illness for most of her short life, Dylynn Watterson passed away earlier this week.
When she was just 15 months old Dylynn was diagnosed with a severe case of pulmonary hypertension. She needed oxygen tubes to survive and her parents were told that Dylynn would never make it to her second birthday.
There was more heartbreak when doctors discovered tumors on her spine.
When KCTV5's Brad Stephens met the Watterson's in June, Dylynn's mom and dad said that each day with her was always better than the last and that they were astounded at her cheerfulness in spite of her health problems.
Dylynn passed away on Monday in Washington State while she and her parents were visiting relatives. She was 4 years old.
A memorial fund for Dylynn has been established at Enterprise Bank at 444 East Santa Fe in Olathe, KS.
