Madi Moore, the standout volleyball player who rallied an Indiana community as she fought leukemia and, in April, was chosen to announce the Indianapolis Colts draft picks, has died.

The 17-year-old player at Linton-Stockton High, 90 miles southwest of Indianapolis, died early Monday at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health.

“Around 7:30 a.m. this morning, our sweet, beautiful girl went home to be with Jesus," her mom, Tera Orman, posted on Facebook. "She waited for all of the immediate family to be here and took her last breath.”

Madi was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in January 2018. In August, she received a stem cell transplant and was declared cancer-free. But twice her body was attacked by graft-versus-host disease; her donor stem cells rejected by her own body. Eventually, the disease caused her lungs to fail.

Madi's journey

It started with an exhaustion Madi had never felt before as she practiced with the Minor Cadets at Linton-Stockton, performing with rifles and flags. She tried to push through, but eventually she couldn't.

After doctors appointments, negative flu tests and a lot of blood work, the phone rang.

"Get her immediately to the ER," Tera Orman remembers the doctor saying. Madi's blood counts were critically low.
