    RIP Stephen Sutton

    "My heart is bursting with pride but breaking with pain for my courageous, selfless, inspirational son who passed away peacefully in his sleep in the early hours of this morning, Wednesday 14th May. The ongoing support and outpouring of love for Stephen will help greatly at this difficult time, in the same way as it helped Stephen throughout his journey. We all know he will never be forgotten, his spirit will live on, in all that he achieved and shared with so many.

    Love,
    His mom x"

    So sad, 19 is no age at all but what an inspirational way to spend his last few months.

    Very sad news. I was hoping he was on the mend after coughing up that tumour. Helped raise over £3m for cancer research. RIP.

    He was a student at my former school.

    What a very brave, exceptional and inspirational man he was. RIP indeed.

    She should be proud. He achieved so much in his short life and has raised money and awareness that will help save lives. Very sad news.

    I hope those that accused him of being a fraud when released from hospital recently are suitably ashamed.

    Sadly but unsurprisingly, yes.

    Such sad news to hear.

    The problem with the internet, people think they are invincible. Some will be found out.

    The guy wanted to raise £10,000 which is a feat in itself, let alone raising £3million from one picture. The trolls are just that, trolls who will go and hide until the next event occurs.

    RIP Stephen Sutton

    Extremely sad news of his passing, such dignity and grace in his final days and shows that despite the half wits trolling him, humanity is very much caring and full of goodness I thought, he's touched he nation

    RIP Stephen

    Been following the story recently, hats off to him, he kept his spirits up right till the last minute. Such a sad story but at least he got to tick some of the things off his bucket list.

    This story has been moving from day one and the more famous he became, the more inspirational the whole thing is. I'm tired of hearing that celebs that simply jumped on the bandwagon to help themselves, so what, if it wasn't for famous people doing that, visiting him and sharing his story, then as moving as this is, his pages would have been lost in the myriad of other charity or fund raising pages. Instead he has a legacy of £3.5m and counting raised... how can that be a bad thing? Also shows the power of social networking!

    Well done Stephen. Well done. Rest in Peace.

    His life was proof that one person can help make a difference on so may other peoples lives, hopefully he can rest easy knowing he had made a difference. Sleep well sweet prince and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.
