GLOCESTER — The community is mourning the death of a Glocester boy who died this week following a four year battle with a rare cancer.
Noah Daigle, the son of Sarah and Dennis Daigle, has died at the age of six.
In 2019, Daigle was diagnosed with stage four neuroblastoma, a rare cancer found in 800 children annually in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society.
In the years since, the community has rallied to support the family, with fundraisers to help with medical expenses, from concerts and raffles, to motorcycle runs and GoFund Me campaigns.
Earlier this year, the Glocester Police Department made Daigle an honorary member.
This week, the department sent out sympathies to the family.
“Noah’s courageous fight and the strength he displayed throughout his journey has left an indelible mark on all those who knew him,” noted GPD in a social media post. “His spirit will continue to live on through the memories he has left behind, and he will always be remembered for the love and joy he brought into the lives of those around him.:
“May he rest in peace, knowing that he was loved deeply and will never be forgotten,” noted GPD.
