This is heartbreaking news. Ben was a joy to watch during the Master Chef Jr season. I loved cheering him on. What a nightmare way to have lost his parents. His rare case of cancer that followed their deaths makes me believe even more that stress and depression can take a toll on our bodies. I am glad he had the chance to showcase his talent for cooking in front of the world and have the time of his short life. He touched the hearts of many, including mine. Rest in heavenly peace dear sweet Ben. ‘
