Two weeks after Cameron Boyce’s tragic death, his mother is breaking her social media silence regarding the loss of her son.
Libby Boyce took to Instagram on Saturday, July 20, to share a black and white photo of herself with the late Disney star. In the picture, she’s standing cheek-to-cheek with her son, who has his eyes closed, leaning close to his mother. It’s a touching and bittersweet memory, and she captioned the picture with a single, heartbreaking sentence: “He is my compass ❤️.”
Cameron’s father, Victor, has also posted several social media tributes to his son. “I hope that no one ever has to feel the agony I’m feeling but no one is immune to tragedy,” he wrote on July 10. A few days later, he shared a photo of the actor as a young boy, adding “I love you Cameron” in the caption.
News of Cameron’s passing broke on July 7, when his family shared that the Descendants actor had died in his sleep from a seizure due to an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated. In the weeks since his death, fans and celebrities alike have taken to social media to remember the actor; the upcoming Descendants 3 telecast will be dedicated to Cameron’s memory.
And that’s not the only way Cameron’s impact will live on in. Earlier in July, his family announced that they would be launching the Cameron Boyce Foundation to support young people through artistic and creative outlets, as an alternative to violence and negativity, and to instill positive change.
In a statement, Libby and Victor explained to People: “The pain we have endured and are continuing to endure is indescribable, but we are making every effort to move forward and ensure that Cameron’s legacy and all that he stood for is honored.”
