A teen, who was supposed to be celebrating with his family on the first day of school, died an hour after he posed for the traditional first day of school photo.
After worrying about health setbacks and potential rejection, everything was going well Thursday for Peyton.
But after the photographic moment, the day started to turn.
He was rushed to Children’s Hospital, where he died later that morning.
The announcement was posted to the Facebook page that chronicled his fight.
WKRC reported that an autopsy is scheduled to find out what happened to Peyton.
