Vt. teen featured in viral video dies

Posted: Updated:

A Vermont teenager whose story we shared on WCAX News has lost her battle with cancer.

We first met Lexy Giallella in September of last year. She was just beginning her fight with lung and liver cancer. Friends arranged for Lexy to meet American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery.

And Lexy hit stardom herself recently in a viral lip-sync video, along with other kids getting treatment at the Children's Hospital at Dartmouth. It was viewed by millions of people across the country.

Sadly, Lexy passed away Tuesday afternoon. She was just 15.
