Walnut Teen Succumbs To Cancer

Posted by wlpo on December 30, 2013

A teenager from Walnut whose fight against cancer captured the hearts of many in the Illinois Valley has died.

Bureau Valley senior Cora Peters died Monday after a battle with the rare form of cancer called Synovial Sarcoma.  She was first diagnosed in 2009.

A Facebook page called “Cora’s Crew: Fighting Cancer Like A Boss” has well over 11 thousand likes.  Hundreds of people have commented on that page and others offering prayers and condolences to the Peters family.

A benefit account for the Peters family has been set up at Citizens First State Bank in Walnut.
