THE family of Oscar Knox – the boy whose heroic battle against cancer touched the hearts of people around the world – have paid a moving tribute to their "little superhero".
Oscar lost his fight for life on Thursday after a two-and- a-half-year battle with neuroblastoma. He was five years old.
His parents announced his death to more than 54,000 followers on their Wee Oscar Twitter account yesterday morning.
The family said: "Our little superhero achieved so much in his short life and inspired so many people throughout the world to do so many amazing things, something we are incredibly proud of."
