Tavin Hashimoto captured hearts all over the island for the way he dealt with Leukemia.
In a Facebook post by parents Davin and Tammi-Lynn Hashimoto on Wednesday morning announced that the boy had passed away:
“It is with heavy hearts that we lost a great warrior!!! But heaven gained the strongest person I know. We lost Tavin last night around 11pm after a 2 year flight with leukemia. He fought hard for over 2 years and did it with a smile everytime. We are so proud of him and blessed that we had 10 wonderful years with him.”
The Hashimotos live in Kula, Maui with Tavin and his two younger siblings.
In March of 2017 the family was devastated to learn that young Tavin had Acute Myeloid Leukemia, an aggressive form of leukemia.
