MIDVALE, Utah — After a seven year battle with cancer 17-year-old Baylee Parks passed away at home Monday afternoon.

Following several relapses Baylee recently decided to stop battling her brain tumor with radiation and chemotherapy.

She chose to spend her remaining time at home with family, doing the things she loved.

That included showing her paintings of Utah landscapes at a Salt Lake City art gallery in November.

Baylee’s family announced her passing a Love, Hope, and Courage Facebook page designed to keep supporters informed about Baylee’s fight.
