On Thursday, May 28, Cameron’s Boyce‘s mom, Libby Boyce, took to Instagram and remembered her son on what would have been his 21st birthday. In a tear-filled video, she paid tribute to the late actor and thanked fans for their donations to the Cameron Boyce Foundation — which was established after his tragic passing in July 2019.
“Everybody, I’m just reading all the notes on The Cameron Boyce Foundation page of all of the comments with the donations and I am just really blown away. Really blown away by all the amazing comments and how many people loved Cameron,” she said in the heartfelt clip. “You know, I just really wanted to say thank you. And it’s so appreciated and we really will be doing amazing things so his death is not in vain. Thank you.”
As fans know, the Disney actor passed away suddenly after having a seizure in his sleep on July 6, 2019. The Descendants and Jessie alum was only 20 years old at the time of his death, and he suffered from a medical condition called epilepsy.
Libby wasn’t the only one who remembered Cameron on this birthday. A bunch of the former Disney Channel star’s fame friends also took to social media and remembered him with meaningful posts.
Sofia Carson posted a sweet throwback snap alongside a caption that read, “What I would do to hold you this tight today. But I know you’re dancing in heaven.”
