Little Cameron Truesdale has lost his brave fight for life.
The 13-year-old, from Waringstown, was diagnosed with a highly aggressive brain tumour in January 2017.
However, his brave battle ended on Wednesday evening, surrounded by his loving family.
Posting the sad news on the Cure4Cam Facebook page, his family said: “Wednesday evening a piece of our heart was takin and carried to heaven.
“Cameron passed away surrounded by his family. He fought with all his might for 20 months after we where given 9 months. He did this with more courage and strength than we will ever know.
“To the best son, stepson, brother, grandchild and friend. We will miss you more than anything but now you are free from cancer and you can rest. We will carry you in our hearts forever.
“We would appreciate everyone’s prayers while we try to cope with the searing pains in our hearts.”
Our thoughts are with Cameron’s family at this time. May he Rest in Peace.
