“He wanted to be an organ donor, cause that’s just how big of a heart he has,” Rhonda Powell wrote on Facebook. “He is still with us right now because of the machines. I know deep down my boys would want to be together because they were that close. They were inseparable.”

Cameron died Thursday morning after donating his organs to six people, according to his mother. He would graduate from High School this year.

According to the GoFundMe, the boys did not have life insurance. The community has raised more than $13,000 to help cover their funeral expenses.
