Madison Taliaferro, a senior in high school in Holton, passed away while awaiting a second double lung transplant.
Taliaferro was born with cystic fibrosis and had already undergone a double lung transplant several years before.
In a post in a support Facebook page Taliaferro’s aunt, Allie Summers, said Madison passed away at 6:25 p.m. on Saturday.
Madison was surround by “her people,” Summers said in the update. Summers said while their family is broken, they are “celebrating [Madison’s] arrival to Heaven.”
Her family said they are thankful for the prayers, support and love people have shown throughout the journey.
