ROGERS, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — A Rogers teen has died exactly two weeks after the city’s high school held a special graduation ceremony for him.
Adam Wright, 18, died December 2, according to his family.
Adam was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer in his ribs and neck.
On November 18, Rogers High School and Highlands Oncology put together a special graduation ceremony for him.
Prior to his death, Adam vlogged about his battle with cancer. He took videos of himself before doctors appointments and gave behind-the-scenes looks at his treatments.
Adam was previously diagnosed with soft tissue cancer at age four.
Adam’s twin brother, Tim, died of a rare form of blood cell cancer just three weeks after his own diagnosis.
The family says arrangements for Adam’s funeral will be shared in the coming days.
