Cameron Boyce's friends and family shared photos, videos and words in honour of what would have been his 21st birthday.
Disney stars, including Debby Ryan, Sofia Carson and Skai Jackson, have all paid tribute to Cameron Boyce on his birthday.
Last year (Jul 6), Cameron Boyce's family announced that the beloved Jessie and Descendants actor had died at the age of 20. In a statement, they said: "It is with a profoundly heavy heart that we report that this morning we lost Cameron. He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated."
Yesterday (May 29), Cameron's friends, former co-stars and family took to Instagram to honour what would have been his 21st birthday. They also took the time to encourage their fans to donate and support the Cameron Boyce Foundation.
Debby Ryan posted a selection of old videos of her with Cameron. She wrote: "idk man, I’m not an expert on grief. I miss my buddy. a soul of pure light. please donate to @thecameronboycefoundation Happy 21st birthday Cam. You changed my life and you’re still changing the world." The videos go back to when Debby and Cameron first met and he was still a child.
Meanwhile, Sofia Carson wrote: "What I would do to hold you this tight today. But I know you’re dancing in heaven. Happy Birthday My Cam. I miss you, forever. I love you, forever." Skai Jackson, Peyton List, Karan Brar and China Anne McClain honoured Cameron with their own personal posts too. China wrote: "you’re still on my mind every day. always will be."
Dove Cameron also revealed that she's teamed up with The Cameron Boyce Foundation to sell a line of merch for charity. She explained: "the profits generated from this campaign will support TCBF in their efforts to end gun violence and cure epilepsy with a portion going to The Actors Fund to aid in COVID-19 relief."

idk man, I’m not an expert on grief. I miss my buddy. a soul of pure light. so bright, such a quick learner and this kindness and playfulness that can reach through anything and transform it with a spark. this dude I could always level with — it hurts, a lot, and I’m thinking that’s because he carved out a beautiful space with a really powerful presence. now we get to keep that alive— please donate to @thecameronboycefoundation Happy 21st birthday Cam. You changed my life and you’re still changing the world

in honor of Cam’s 21st birthday, i have teamed up with The Cameron Boyce Foundation to create the limited edition Dove x WieldingPeace collection. the profits generated from this campaign will support TCBF in their efforts to end gun violence and cure epilepsy with a portion going to The Actors Fund to aid in COVID-19 relief. your purchases and your donations to the Cameron Boyce foundation mean more to me, his family, his friends, and his entire community (and the causes that he cared about) than you will ever know. Cameron was the most beautiful soul most of us will ever know. please, if you are able, buy, gift, donate, and spread the word as we continue the work of what would have been Cameron’s life legacy. he deserved so much more time, so much more life. i implore you to help us try to give him that. link to purchase is in my bio. 🤍
Our thoughts go out to Cameron's friends and family at this time.
