CAPE CORAL, Fla. - She was a daughter, a sister, a cheerleader and a fighter.  But on Sunday, 12 year old Gulf Middle School student, Marilyn "Lynn" Schrowe, lost her battle with a deadly form of brain cancer. Her father, Chris tells WINK News, despite being bedridden, Lynn (as she liked being called), would joke with her care-takers and always want to be a part of what was going on in the home. The family brought her bed out into the living room so she could continue to interact. At one point, seizures took away her ability to speak. But with the help of an iPad she was able to text what she wanted to say. Her family says she loved supporting her brother's sports teams and cheerleading. A memorial service is scheduled for Lynn later this week at McGregor Baptist Church.
