This syndrome obtained some additional press in June 2011, when Robert Horry, who has played professional basketball for the Rockets, Suns, Lakers, and Spurs and has seven championship rings, lost his 17 year old daughter, Ashlyn, to this rare disease on June 14th, 2011. Although she had many problems, she was a loved and loving member of the Horry family. When symptoms were first noted, the disease had not yet been named but the family supported Ashlyn to the best of their ability and even established a foundation (see reference 2) for disabled youth in 2008 named the Ashlyn Horry Foundation. Although I never met Ashlyn, as a parent, I am sorry for the Horry family's loss of their daughter and admire the efforts they made to give Ashlyn and others a better life.
