Girl, 9, Who Inspired Archers Everywhere Dies of Rare Cancer

KSAL StaffDecember 7, 2016

A 9-year-old Kansas girl whose battle with brain cancer sparked an outpouring of support from fellow archers has died.

Downing & Lahey Mortuary says Addison Kye Adams died Monday. The Wichita Eagle reports that she was at her parents’ home in Goddard when she died.

Archers from around the world put the letter “A” for Addison on arrows and kept them in their quivers to take her, in spirit, hunting and target shooting. They also sent photos and arrows to Kansas.

A vase in her parents’ home holds a bouquet of about 75 arrows. Addison’s mother, Kindra Adams, says the arrows will “be an heirloom.”

Christina Jones, Addison’s archery coach, says the tribute was perfect for the girl who deeply loved target shooting.
