WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - For the last year, the Wilmington community has gathered in support of a young boy battling cancer.
Saturday, Zack Mayo passed away after the long battle, according to a statement posted this morning on the family's website.
Mayo was a student at Parsley Elementary School who had a scooter accident at the start of last summer and then experienced serious complications. Doctors found a cancerous tumor on his liver and he had to be rushed to Chapel Hill for treatment.
For the last several months, he's been at Cincinnati Children's Hospital for treatment.
