SULLIVAN COUNTY, TN (WJHL) - A 7-year-old Sullivan County boy who underwent a double lung and heart transplant last year, and another surgery earlier this month passed away on Sunday.

Weston Keeton's family released a statement on the "Weston's Warriors" Facebook page:

"It is with heavy hearts we share, Weston went to Heaven earlier this afternoon. He is at peace and with God. Julie, Adam, and the entire Keeton family wants to thank everyone for their love and prayers throughout Weston's journey. 'Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.'"

Weston was being treated at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia but is originally from Blountville.

Weston's family is planning to release funeral arrangements at a later time. They do request if anyone would like to help with the cost of funeral expenses to please donate to the COTA Fund.
