The sudden death of young actor and Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce on July 6, 2019 left his family stunned. Heartbreakingly, he had had a glittering career ahead of him; he was in Disney’s Descendants movie series, for one, and he had recently signed up to HBO comedy Mrs. Fletcher. But most importantly of all, he was a son and a brother. And although his relatives asked for privacy while dealing with the “nightmare,” touching tributes nevertheless poured in.
Now tragically, Boyce died from an epileptic seizure in his sleep, his family revealed. Sadly, he had been dealing with Epilepsy for some time, and it was serious enough to cause his death. Indeed, every year, around 1 in 1,000 people are struck by Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy, or SUDEP.
