Rest in Peace, Lacey Holsworth

The 8-year-old girl, who inspired many, lost her fight with cancer early this morning.

Gregory Shamus

Today is a sad day to be a Spartan fan. Lacey Holsworth, who with love and support throughout Michigan State, valiantly fought the cancer inside her. That battle came to an end today at 3 AM, as she passed away.  While sports can seem to be a silly thing to get worked up about, the passion and love that we feel for Michigan State helped rally a young child and gave her the support she needed at her and her family's time of need. I'll end with Tom Izzo's comments to WVFN this morning transcribed by LSJ reporter Chris Solari, and a reminder that this page will point you in the right direction if you want to help the Holsworth family in their time of need.
