Northwest schools and the Canal Fulton community are mourning the loss of 10-year Ryan Trewin, who died on Tuesday.
Jim Carney had the story for the Akron Beacon Journal:
Ryan Trewin fought cancer for more than seven years. He inspired people across the region, including Browns stars Josh Cribbs and Peyton Hillis and his entire hometown.
Ryan died at home Tuesday morning. Cribbs made note of his friend's passing on his Twitter account a few hours later.
''There is a new angel above us today,'' wrote Cribbs.
''Thank you Ryan for the courage you showed us all. Ten years is not long enough. God be with you.''
