Terminally-ill UK teen Stephen Sutton dies in his sleep
Mr Stephen Sutton, who raised more than £3 million (S$6.3 million) for The Teenager Cancer Trust, died this morning in hospital.
His mother announced the news on his Facebook page.
The teen from Staffordshire, England, was diagnosed with cancer when he was 15.
Last January, when he found out that his disease was incurable, he set up a Facebook page titled “Stephen’s Story” with a bucket list of 46 things he wanted to do.
He has raised much more than his modest target of £10,000, and was even visited in hospital by UK Prime Minister David Cameron.
The 19-year-old was re-admitted to hospital on Sunday after developing breathing difficulties caused by the re-growth of tumours, reported The Guardian.
