Little girl died of complications from COVID-19 after the virus triggered a rare auto-immune disorder and within days her body could no longer fight it
Unfortunately, the young girl reportedly died of complications from COVID-19 just days after her baby sister was born. The 7-year-old girl reportedly developed an autoimmune response that turned into a rare kind of inflammation called Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis that affects the brain and spinal cord. The family said she died from COVID-19 after the virus triggered a rare autoimmune response.
The 7-year-old girl from Tennessee, Adalyn Graviss, was a really kind friend, her family and friends said. Those who knew her described her as a cheerful daughter of the Lord.
According to reports, doctors told the family they believe the virus triggered an auto-immune disorder and within days Adalyn’s body could no longer fight the virus. On Monday, the 7-year-old girl died after being diagnosed with COVID-19.
Navy-Jane Pace, Adalyn’s friend, reportedly said: “She was a really kind friend, and we both had a lot of opinions that we would agree on. I miss her, and I hope that I get to see her again soon.”
Holly Pace, Her former Kindergarten teacher, said the 7-year-old always shared her love for Jesus and enjoyed encouraging others.
“I knew right away that she was a different kind of kiddo. She was wise and responsible, just like a little mother hen. She had the light of Jesus in her, and she was not afraid to tell people about him.
She was so excited to tell me that she believed in Jesus, and she wanted her friends to.”
According to reports, Adalyn developed an autoimmune response that turned into a rare kind of inflammation called Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis that affects the brain and spinal cord.
Whether it was dressing as her favorite princess, putting on concerts for her friends and family, or singing her favorite hymns, her family said the 7-year-old girl made a friend where ever she would go.
“She loves Jesus music, she loved being around her family and friends, she loved basketball, she loved dance, she loved going to church, she loved to play dress-up. Every day she wore my high heels and she was dancing up and down the hallway.” Adalyn’s mother said.
A GoFundMe Page has been created to support Adalyn’s family.
