Last July 6, the world had lost such a talented actor who had to pass away at such a young age.
Cameron Boyce died at the age of 20 in his sleep after suffering from “a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated” which was then further elaborated and confirmed to be epilepsy. After his death, the whole world mourned. It’s just so difficult not to as Cameron Boyce has been in the Disney shows that have taken a huge part in our hearts some of which are “Good Luck Charlie”, “Shake It Up”, “Jessie”, “Jake and the Never Land Pirates”, “Ultimate Spiderman”, “Bunk’d”, and his most famous project, “Descendants” where he starred as the son of 101 Dalmatian’s Cruella De Vil. In fact, he’s been such a huge star of Disney Channel that the red carpet premiere of the third installment of the Descendants trilogy has been cancelled whilst the whole production honors his death. The parent company of Disney Channel, The Walt Disney Productions, has also relayed their contributions by making a donation to The Thirst Project, one of the charities close to Cameron’s heart. And on top of all that, the whole telecast of Descendants 3 will be dedicated to him.
Many of his co-stars and friends have also paid their tributes and homage to the young actor. One such is Sofia Carson who posted her respects with grief evident on Instagram stating, “To our angel, There are not enough words. There will never be enough words. I couldn’t bring myself to do this because doing this makes it real. Letting you go is not something I know how to do. And I just can’t fathom living in a world without you. I love you, Cam. And I will love you. Forever.” Dove Cameron supported the post by commenting.
Adam Sandler, one of the greatest comedians, has also paid his tributes to Cameron who he had worked with in the movie, “Grown Ups”, by helping to raise $15,000 for The Thirst Project. Other close co-stars and friends such as Skai Jackson and Nolan Gould have also been promoting the charity and convincing their fans to donate as well.
His family on the other hand, has launched a foundation they have named after the beloved actor whose mission is to aid “young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world.”
As tribute, we would like to give our condolences to his family for having lost such a wonderful gem in their lives. Now, he is in a wonderful place and surely joyfully thinking about how everyone has decided to step up to help with his charities.
We would also like to urge you to donate to the The Thirst Project which provides clean drinking water throughout the lands of Africa in honor of the late Descendants star, Cameron Boyce.
