Rest in Peace, Katelyn

KatelynNorman“Sweet Kate went to be with the Lord at 8:23am,” read an update posted Friday to a fundraising page for Norman. “She is now dancing with Jesus! Rest in Peace Katelyn!”

Just days after getting her “bucket list” wish to celebrate prom, 14-year-old Katelyn Norman died peacefully in her hospital bed after a long battle with bone cancer.

The teenager, who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2011, passed away in the same hospital where she had donned a corsage and sash on Tuesday night for an impromptu prom celebration, put on by her friends and the staff at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital in Knoxville.
