Northern Ireland boy Cameron Truesdale who battled brain tumour laid to rest

The funeral of Cameron Truesdale has taken place in Donaghcloney.

The 13-year-old from Waringstown, Co Down died on Wednesday surrounded by his family after a long battle with a brain tumour.

He had been battling the brain tumour since January 2017 and doctors had told his family it was inoperable.

Cameron's family posted a tribute on their 'Cure4cam' Facebook page.

"Wednesday evening a piece of our heart was taken and carried to heaven," they wrote.

"Cameron passed away surrounded by his family. He fought with all his might for 20 months after we where given 9 months. He did this with more courage and strength than we will ever know.

"To the best son, stepson, brother, grandchild and friend.

"We will miss you more than anything but now you are free from cancer and you can rest. We will carry you in our hearts forever.     

"We would appreciate everyone’s prayers while we try to cope with the searing pains in our hearts."

On Sunday a service of thanksgiving took place at Donaghcloney Elim Church at 2.30pm, followed by internment in Lurgan Cemetery.
