Young cancer patient with 'bucket list' has passed away

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- We have some sad news to report about a little boy who had a 'bucket list.' Billy Lee has lost his battle with cancer, according to his great aunt.

Billy was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma at three years old. His parents say he came home from school with crossed eyes one day.

After four painful surgeries, chemotherapy, and multiple relapses, the cancer was no longer treatable. Doctors have predicted Billy has just over a month to live. So, his family decided, no more hospital rooms, no more medicine, no more needles. Instead, they took him to Florida for two weeks.

Strangers who had never even met Billy got involved, too. They donated decorations for an Avengers themed party over the summer.
