Cameron Boyce's Mom Libby Cries While Remembering Late Son on His 21st Birthday

Cameron Boyce's mother shared a heartwrenching video as she thanked fans for their kind messages ahead of what would have been her son's 21 birthday. "His death is not in vain," she insisted. 

On Thursday, late Disney star Cameron Boyce's mom Libby Boyce shared an emotional video to Instagram regarding her son. Cameron passed away at just 20 years old last July. 

Weeks after the shocking death, his family set up The Cameron Boyce Foundation to raise money to stop gun violence, fund research, and increase awareness of epilepsy. The post is found below.

CAMERON'S MOM NEARLY BREAKS DOWN

The actor died from a seizure after a lengthy battle with the condition. His mother shared the video on the foundation's page. Fighting back the tears, she stated

"Everybody, I'm just reading all the notes on the Cameron Boyce Foundation page of all the comments and with the donations, and I'm just really blown away."

Getting a bit choked up, Libby said she was in awe of "how many people loved Cameron," who would have turned 21 years old on May 28. She thanked the fans again for their support and donations.

In the last interview before his death, the "Jessie" star talked about the joy one gets from positively changing others' lives. His family and friends are honoring him by doing just that. 

FELLOW DISNEY STAR HELPS OUT

The foundation recently collaborated with Cameron's "Descendants" co-star Dove Cameron to start a t-shirt campaign called Wielding Peace, which fights against gun violence. 

The t-shirts sport a picture of Cameron's tattoo — a gun barrel with flowers coming out of it — and are only available in limited amounts. Some of the proceeds also went towards the Actors Fund COVID Relief. 

A foundation spokesperson explained that Cameron would give back to others every year  on his birthday rather than accepting gifts. "Philanthropy and giving were second nature to him," they said

LIBBY SHARES ESSAY ON MOTHER'S DAY

Last month, Libby opened up about spending mother's day without her son for the first time in an essay written for "Good Morning America." The grieving mother shared her story and her wish for others.

"Everyone loved him and felt good around him. They were drawn into his warmth and rootedness," she said of her son. She dedicated the Mother's Day tribute to Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) awareness.

VICTOR BOYCE DREAMS OF HIS SON

Last December, Cameron's father, Victor Boyce, also spoke of how he's handling his son's death. He revealed that Cameron has appeared in his dreams in very realistic ways. 

Victor included two photos to represent how he sees his son while asleep. The harrowing caption reflected just how deep the father's grief goes. Our hearts go out to Cameron's parents, especially at this time.
