An 11-year-old Oskaloosa boy who battled leukemia has died.
Caleb Hammond died early Monday morning. He had chosen to cease cancer treatments that were no longer working.
Caleb’s mother Holly Kempf shared the following on Facebook:
"Our little Mr went peacefully in his sleep at 2:00 a.m. today surrounded by our families. Before I was woken up being told he was getting ready to pass, he was smiling at me while I was dreaming. With my hand on his chest, I felt his last breath and a few last heart beats." Full story HERE
