9-Year Old Black Girl Becomes Youngest Person in Florida to Die From COVID-19

Putnam County, FL — Kimora “Kimmie” Lynum, a 9-year old African American girl, has been reported as the youngest person in Florida to have died from COVID-19 so far.

Lynum was taken to the hospital when she started feeling sick and had a high fever. She tested positive for coronavirus but was sent home. She collapsed and sadly died shortly after.

It has yet been confirmed how or when Lynum got infected. Her family said she did not have any underlying health conditions and she did not travel recently. She spent her days at home and did not attend school or summer camp.

Lynum had no close contact with anyone who tested positive of the COVID-19 as well, official state health department records show.

GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help with Lynum’s funeral expenses and it has so far raised more than $15,000.

“Bryce Strong” – “One Last Smile”

Published

on

Family, friends and fans have witnessed what “fighting the good” fight looks like. Unfortunately, no parents should ever have to bury their own child, but knowing their son gave it his all until his last breath may provide some peace for the family. 

Bryce Wisdom, the Judson High School football player that was stricken with a rare kidney cancer known as a Wilms tumor passed away at the age of 17.  He was rushed to the hospital Friday and was diagnosed with a collapsed lung. Prayers and well wishes for Bryce flooded social media the entire weekend. With family by his side, Bryce took his last breath at 11:39PM on Sunday, July 26, 2020.

Many thanks to the Wisdom Family for sharing Bryce’s journey with the world. San Antonians and beyond have followed Bryce’s story and clung his electrifying strength and intrinsic motivation in which he exhibited through his smile and grace as he endured the painful disease.  Though you may not have known him personally you couldn’t help but admire his courage and will to live.  On the Bryce Wisdom & Family Updates Facebook page, Bryce’s mother shared that on Sunday morning from his hospital bed he told her “Mom I won.”    

The family has asked that instead of sending flowers, donations can be made to either Puttaway Cancer or Hope Hits Harder. Both organizations provide financial scholarships, resources and meals to cancer patients and were a blessing to Bryce and the family as he battled cancer.

Let’s keep the Bryce family lifted in prayer during this extremely difficult time.
