Actor Cameron Boyce should have woken up Wednesday morning (May 27) smiling and excited for the day and night ahead on what would have been his 21st birthday. But the star of The Descendants did not live long enough to get to do that. Cameron died in his sleep last summer after suffering a seizure due to his ongoing battle with epilepsy.

And his mother still can’t shake that reality.

Libby Boyce shared a video on The Cameron Boyce Foundation’s Instagram page where she thanked all of those who took the time to honor the memory of her son on his 21st birthday.

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.”

“Happy 21st Birthday Cam,” the post read.“Over this past week, we have been blown away by the outpouring of support and love to honor Cam’s legacy. We have fundraised $45,000 in just 4 days towards ending gun violence and curing epilepsy. None of this would have been possible without the support from all of you.”
