Your Lunchtime Cry: 8-Year-Old Superfan Lacey Holsworth Is Dead

Sad update: Lacey “Princess” Holsworth, who jumped into our hearts during March Madness through her friendship with Michigan State baller Adreian Payne has died.

The 8-year-old suffered from nerve cancer and succumbed to the disease early Wednesday morning, writes Mashable. Her parents posted the news on Instagram, along with this message.

Princess Lacey has achieved the ultimate victory. She now dances among angels.... The world is a better place because you were in it. Our hearts are broken. We love you Doll. Dance all night... Mommy and Daddy, Will, Mitchell, and Luke💞 #LoveLikeLacey
