Vanderbilt tight end Turner Cockrell dies after year-long battle with cancer

Turner's younger sister is very good friends with my Goddaughter. They come from a really good family. I cant imagine losing a child for any reason - let alone a healthy D1 athlete to a failing body at 21 years old. Absolutely heartbreaking. The dr's told the family just last week that he had about 3 months to live.

Not that there is much correlation to this story, but his sister has spent a few weeks the last few summers on Skanaeteles.

It's sad when anyone dies from that disease, but especially so when it's a young, otherwise healthy person.

Sorry to hear.

Loss of life at such an early age is a tragedy. Simply put, it isn’t fair.

I cannot imagine, and never want to imagine, what his parents are going through

I hurt for that family and community. I can’t fathom losing a child.

Sorry for the loss but uplifting to hear of the team support for Turner and his family. Great that they are supportive in their time of need.
