Logan Stevenson, the dying 2-year-old who broke the country’s heart when he served as best man at his parents’ wedding on Saturday, has passed away. He died Aug. 5 of complications from Fanconi anemia, the rare genetic disease that had plagued him for most of his short life.
“At 8:18 my son took his last breath in my arms,” Logan’s mother, Christine Swidorsky, wrote in a Facebook post late Monday evening. “I’m so sad, upset and I’m in disbelief. He is with angels, and he’s in no more pain. No more sickness, no more hospitals. We love all of [you] for all your prayers.”
Logan had been battling leukemia and cancerous tumors on his kidneys since December 2011, and a few weeks ago his doctors informed the family he had only weeks left to live.
“It hurts. I’ve cried so much today I can’t even shed another tear,” Swidorsky told TODAY on Monday, as Logan’s condition grew worse. “I’m heartbroken.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with this family as they grieve the loss of this little angel.
