Our St. Jude ambassador, Carson Higgins, has passed away.

We first featured Carson's fight with neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system,  and his positive outlook back in 2013.

Carson was diagnosed with neuroblastoma when he was 3 years old.

Sadly, after years of being in remission, his illness returned around Thanksgiving time last year.

We talked with Carson via SKYPE back in March,  while he was receiving treatment at St.Jude Hospital in Memphis.

Carson and his family, who live in Summit County,  spent the last four weeks of his life traveling the country in an R-V, visiting all the places Carson wanted to see.

12-year-old Carson Higgins died Thursday morning while on vacation in Las Vegas. Despite  his painful treatments he had to endure, Carson always had a positive outlook.

The  FOX 8 family wants to offer our thoughts and prayers to Carson's family and friends during this time.
