A YOUNG Wirral teenager who died after battling a rare brain tumour has been remembered in a touching tribute by his best friend.

Will Allen, 14, from Prenton passed away on December 8, 2016 while undergoing a second round of radiotherapy for an inoperable brain tumour.

His best friend Morgan Evrem wants to make sure that Will's memory stays alive.

Will’s tumour shrank during the first round of radiotherapy but sadly began to grow again in September 2016.

After his death, Morgan fulfilled Will’s final wish of returning to school on the last day before the Christmas break to meet his friends and teachers by bringing a photograph of the youngster in which was signed by all his friends.

On the last day of year 10, Will's classmates had a picture of Will on the back of their school shirts calling him a ‘true Anselmian’ so that he could finish the academic year with them.

Yesterday, Morgan marked one year since he met up with Will for the last time.

On Facebook Morgan said: "One year ago today I met up with my best mate Will at Costa, we spoke as we always did.

"At the time I did not know that, then would be the last time that I would see Will.

"That day I will remember forever. I will be forever be grateful to Helen and Steve (Will's parents) for letting me spend a precious hour with Will that day.

"Today I went to the same Costa to remember him and let some balloons go.

"Also I was pleasantly surprised when Helen walked into that Costa to surprise us. 

"Rest In Peace Will, you will always be missed."

Will and his family had worked tirelessly to raise more than £60,000 of the £80,000 total for pioneering treatment in 2017 with the support of his favourite Liverpool Football Club and Hollyoaks cast.

Now the family are determined to keep fundraising to reach their target so that the funds can be donated to a child in a similar situation as Will.
