A little girl’s fight against cancer which has captivated the Illinois Valley came to a courageous end over the weekend.

The family of 5-year-old Lily Rosploch announced on the “Rally for Lily” Facebook page that Lily had passed away Saturday. Thousands upon thousands of messages of condolences quickly poured in.

Rosploch of La Salle was diagnosed with a form of cancer called neuroblastoma on third birthday in June of 2012. Since then she had been undergoing treatment at children’s hospitals in Peoria, Chicago and Memphis.

A statement from the family remembers Lily saying “thou she may have been little, Lily Rose Rosploch was fierce!”
