Update: Adrianne is still alive, but is not doing well. She continues to fight this battle as she always has. To the mistake made on my part...I greatly apologize. It was a misinterpretation of the latest update and I am truly sorry. It was never the intention of the station or the author to disturb, hurt, or offend the family or anyone. Deepest apologies to the family and to Adrianne especially.

Adrianne Dye was diagnosed with a gliobastoma muliforme brain tumor in 2007. She battled through several tough surgeries and many bouts of treatment. At such a young age she never gave up but the disease is winning. Unfortunately Dye's time is running out.

A GoFundMe page has been set up in the hopes of raising money so Adrianne's mother can cover funeral expenses for her daughter. Any donation is appreciated and you can contribute by visiting Adrienne's GoFundMe page. If you would like to mail a donation directly you can do so by sending your gift to Adrienne Dye c/o Renee Dye, 706 Roberts Street Utica NY 13502. #DyeStrong - Never Give Up bracelets for sale for just $3.00.
