A Mount Pleasant boy with an inoperable brain tumor has died.

A facebook page set-up for updates on Ethen Richardson posted about 6:30 Wednesday night that "Ethen is completely healed and there is no more sickness. God called his little angel back home today. There will be more posts and info as family and friends arrive in Charleston. Thanks to everyone for your continued prayers.God called his little angel back home today."

Since Ethen was diagnosed last summer with an inoperable brain tumor, there have been several fundraisers in Ethen's name and he was even featured on Fox News' New Years Eve special as a Make a Wish recipient in Times Square.


Read more about Ethen's journey, and a community that came together for support for him and his family:
