Former Chicago Bears running back Adrian Peterson’s son has passed away from cancer at seven-years-old.

July 2014, six-year-old AJ was diagnosed with a brain-stem tumor known as Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).Tuesday morning, Peterson made an announcement on FaceBook regarding his son stating,  “#Ajsoars is in Heaven, where he belongs…#ajsoars #P3 #MyFirstSuperHero.”

Since leaving the NFL, Peterson has started The Adrian Peterson All  Day Foundation helping children in need. Peterson has publicly documented his son’s struggle with cancer, which aided him to raise $40,000 to cover AJ’s medical expenses.

In January 2015, Make-A-Wish Foundation, made AJ’s wish a reality by swearing him in as a Round Lake Police Officer.

We send our condolences to the Peterson family.
