ESPYS: Robert Horry touched by well wishes over daughter's death

It's been exactly one month since Robert Horry's 17-year-old daughter, Ashlyn, passed away after living her life with a rare genetic condition, and the overwhelming fan support has touched the former Laker forward since then.

At the 2011 ESPY Awards, Horry thanked my colleague Brad Turner for spreading the word out about his sentiments surrounding his daughter, who was born on April 2, 1994 with severe respiratory issues and eventually was diagnosed with the 1p36 Deletion Syndrome, caused by the missing part of chromosome No. 1. He didn't allow the unfortunate news to ruin the festive vibe surrounding the awards show. And he's felt overwhelmingly appreciative to the fans who've donated to the Ashlyn Horry Foundation

"If you want to donate, donate," Horry said on the red carpet. "But if you don't want to, you don't have to. Make sure you know somebody who has a child, brother or sister who has a certain syndrome and show them love. That's all we're asking for, to show them love and understanding."
