Many were left stunned that how could such a wholesome and young man could pass away so easily? Apparently Boyce had to overcome a seizure. According to a close family member, “Cameron passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated.”
We had assumed him to be a healthy man, although he was going through an illness but no one knew it’s severity. At the time, Cameron’s family was left utterly heartbroken and asked for privacy and prayers.
His legacy didn’t end there, the young man was known for being generous and charitable. In his memory, “The Cameron Boyce Foundation,” was quickly set up after his demise by his family and has so far helped raised thousands of dollars for underprivileged families dealing with epilepsy, a condition Boyce went through himself.
Libby Boyce, his mother had left an emotional video message in light of the foundation; quoting that: “I am blown away. The messages, the donations, so much love for Cameron. I just wanted to thank you and say how much we appreciate this. We are going to do great things with the foundation so that he will not be forgotten.”
The foundation’s motto reads as to follow the humanitarian’s legacy and empower fellow youngsters who grew up watching him on television.
A little before his annual passing anniversary, the actor’s in the limelight 11 months later as fans once again mourn over his tragic death.
It’s not known whether it was a paid campaign that led to Boyce suddenly trending on Twitter or just that the fans remember him dearly, the latter seems to be the case.
