Cameron tragically passed away on July 6 at the age of 20 after suffering from an epileptic seizure in his sleep and his family said his death was "heart-wrenching."

A spokesperson for the family said at the time: "Cameron's tragic passing was due to a seizure as a result of an ongoing medical condition, and that condition was epilepsy. We are still trying to navigate our way through this extremely heart-wrenching time, and continue to ask for privacy so that the family and all who knew and loved him can grieve his loss and make arrangements for his funeral - which in and of itself, is agonising."

Fellow Disney star and friend actress Debb Ryan took to Instagram to share the tribute laid out for Cameron at his funeral service.

"This effervescent soul attracted art, respect, poetry, kindness, community— what a gift to be brought together today in a deeply bittersweet celebration of a life we were so fortunate to intersect with," Debb wrote alongside a video showing photos of Cameron.

"His mum told me 'He is our compass.' and it’s showing, as all directions have pointed to love and light and togetherness. We love you, Cameron. Thank you for what you’ve given us, and continue to give us."

His family have now launched the Cameron Boyce Foundation, which aims to provide young people with creative outlets as alternatives to violence, in his honour.

And in a separate message, he wrote: "Now is the time to make a change. Donate what you can. Encourage your friends and family to do the same. Let's keep Cameron's legacy alive and make a positive difference in the World."

Victor then proceeded to retweet several people who had replied to him to say they would be donating, including one fan of Cameron who said she would be making a donation to the cause every month.
