Watkins had it tough as he had lost both parents in a murder-suicide three years ago.

In a statement released through his GoFundMe page, his grandmother, Donna Edwards and uncle, Anthony Edwards said, “Our Ben went home to be with his mother this afternoon after a year-and-a-half-long battle with cancer.

“Ben suffered more than his share in his 14 years on this Earth, but we take solace in that his suffering is finally over and in that, in the end, Ben knew he was loved by so many.”
