Cameron Boyce’s mom breaks down in tears over fans’ loving comments and donations on late son’s 21st birthday – The Sun

LIBBY Boyce, mother of the late Descendants actor Cameron Boyce, thanked fans for their love and charity donations on what would have been her son’s 21st birthday on Thursday.

In July 2019, Cameron passed away, at 20 years old, after suffering a seizure, and his family and friends later created the Cameron Boyce Foundation in his honor.

Leading up to Cameron’s birthday, his loved ones announced that they hoped to raise $50,000 for causes that the Jessie star deeply cared about, including ending gun violence and curing epilepsy.

The foundation’s Happy Birthday Cameron fundraiser officially crossed that threshold on Thursday afternoon, with more than 2500 supporters donating to the cause and leaving sweet notes about Cam.

Seeing all of the comments and donations, as they started coming in, in honor of her late son, Libby was overwhelmed and broke down in tears while thanking everyone in a video posted to social media.

She said: "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.



“[I’m] really blown away by all the amazing comments and how many people loved Cameron.”

His mom continued, while choking back tears: ”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."

Cameron was best known for his Disney Channel series Jessie, as well as his musical DCOM franchise Descendants, but he was also active in the philanthropic world.

He was vocal about the projects that were important to him, including bringing clean water to underdeveloped countries, helping to end homelessness, ending gun violence and curing epilepsy.

 

The Cameron Boyce Foundation aims to pick up where he left off and continue on his fight, and Cam’s Jessie co-star and former roommate Karan Brar is a big part of the new organization.

In honor of his late friend’s birthday, he told fans the foundation has “a lot of exciting things in the works that we can’t wait to share with you all.”

He also wished the Grown Ups actor a “happy birthday,” adding: “I love you so much.”

Some of the his other friends and co-stars wished him a happy birthday on Thursday, as well.


Cam’s Gamer's Guide to Pretty Much Everything co-star and former roommate Sophie Reynolds shared a video her and Cameron hanging out together while he said, captioning it: “happy birthday cam. excuse the camera work, I secretly filmed this and I’m so glad I did. I love you always.”

Jessie actress Skai Jackson posted: “Help us celebrate what would have been Cameron's 21st birthday in a meaningful way.

“Cameron always chose to be charitable on his birthday and would be so touched that proceeds from this birthday fundraiser will go towards two causes close to his heart…Happy birthday Cam, we all miss you!”

Descendants 3 and Grown Ups star China Anne McClain wrote: “It’s midnight in GA. Happy birthday baby boy. you’re still on my mind every day. always will be.”
