Robert Horry’s 17-year old daughter passes away from rare disease

Ashlyn Horry, the 17-year-old daughter of former NBA player Robert Horry, died today from “severe respiratory issues and a host of other complications requiring a six month stay in Texas Childrens Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit,” 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 diagnosed with a chromosome abnormality so rare it did not even have name.

Robert Horry played for 15 seasons in the NBA on four different teams — The Rockets, Suns, Lakers and Spurs. He was on seven championship teams — two in Houston, three in L.A. and two in San Antonio
