Cameron Boyce’s family and friends fondly remember the late actor on the 1 year anniversary of his death. The Descendants star was 20 when he died suddenly on July 6, 2019, after suffering a seizure in his sleep due to epilepsy.
After his passing, his family started the Cameron Boyce Foundation. It “provides young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity. And uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world.”
On Monday, the foundation’s official Instagram account posted a PSA shedding light on KNOSUDEPNOW. This campaign was launched by TCBF in partnership with the Epilepsy Foundation and the SUDEP Institute. The campaign is his family’s initiative to bring awareness and to end Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy.
The Instagram caption on the post reads, “Today, though our hearts are heavy, we choose to honor the incredible legacy Cameron leaves behind. And our commitment to use our resources to make our world a better place. We are so grateful for your love and support, and we will continue onward in our fight to end SUDEP. Please visit KNOWSUDEPNOW.org to learn more about how you can help. Much love, TCBF.”

And every day, we miss you a little more,” Carson wrote. “Not having you, hurts too much. But somehow, you still manage to light up our whole entire world. Our Cam, Our forever boy. Our sunshine wearing shoes. I miss you. So much. I love you. And I will love you. Forever.”
Salma Hayek, who also starred alongside Boyce in the Grown Ups films, posted a photo of the two. “Remembering all the joy Cameron Boyce gifted us,” the actress wrote in English and Spanish.
