Western Pa. boy dies days after serving as parents’ best man
A terminally ill 2-year-old boy from a Pittsburgh suburb died Monday night, just days after serving as the best man in his parents’ wedding.
Logan Stevenson died at 8:18 p.m., according to a post on his mother’s Facebook page.
Logan’s story became national news after his parents, Christine Swidorsky and Sean Stevenson, of Jeanette, Pa., moved up their July 2014 wedding date so their son could take part in it.
“Sean and I held him all day; he was comfortable with his medication then at 8:18 my son took his last breath in my arms,” Swidorsky wrote on her Facebook page.
Logan, who was born with rare genetic disorder Fanconi anemia, was given just weeks to live in late July after he had been diagnosed with leukemia shortly after his first birthday.
