According to the foundation website, “The Cameron Boyce Foundation provides young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world.”
“Cameron was all about positivity, diversity and inclusiveness,” Victor Tweeted. “Let’s honor his legacy and be the same way. I feel his spirit in each message I read, in every hug I receive.”
Cameron , most known for his role as Carlos on The Descendants, passed away on Sunday July 7. The 20-year-old died in his sleep after suffering a seizure that was related to his ongoing medical condition, epilepsy.
The young star appeared in many Disney Channel TV shows including Good Luck Charlie; Shake It Up; Austin and Ally and Liv and Maddie. His role as Luke Ross in Jessie made him a household name, but his role as Carlos in The Descendants further cemented his Disney star status.
“I miss him terribly,” Boyce’s dad Victor wrote of his son. “I hope that no one ever has to feel the agony I’m feeling but no one is immune to tragedy.”
