11-year-old boy whose dying wish was to feed the hungry has died

October 17, 2013 (BATON ROUGE, La.)

Trevor Simms died of rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare childhood cancer, according to ABC News. Just weeks before he passed away, Trevor helped start a citywide food drive that is expected to provide 200,000 meals to hungry people in Baton Rouge, La.

More than 23,000 lbs of foodo and $34,000 were donated to the Baton Rouge Food bank thanks to Trevor's food drive. His mother hopes that the food drive will continue annually in his name.

Trevor and his family went hungry for days at a time when he was first diagnosed. "I don't want anyone to feel that way," he said.
