Dalton Edwards, who inspired Iredell County and beyond through his dealings with Cancer, has died.

The “Pray for Dalton” Facebook Page posted Sunday afternoon that Dalton had passed-away around 9:00 am. A graduate of West Iredell High School, Dalton has had the community’s attention and support in recent years including through the publishing of a book about his story.

“He fought long and hard and showed so much bravery and courage,” his mother Geri wrote via Facebook. “I could not have asked for a better son. He taught me patience, gave me strength, and real true unconditional love.”

Dalton’s mother posted on the page less than three weeks ago that his health had declined.

Funeral arrangements have not been announced at this time.
