Leesburg - A young Lee County mother, battling kidney cancer, has died.

Twenty-nine year old Mandi Lyon was diagnosed with stage four renal cell carcinoma shortly after the birth of her son, who is now one year old.

Her friends, family and community rallied around her and even held a benefit concert in September to raise money for her treatment.

Mandi, a Lee County school teacher, died at home yesterday.

Her funeral is tomorrow at two at Byne Memorial Baptist Church in Albany.
