Just one day after a popular 17-year-old student was laid to rest, support is pouring in for the family on a GoFundMe page.

Brendan James Maguire, 17, of Patterson died on Monday, Aug 20. He had been diagnosed with osteosarcoma 14 months ago.

He played both basketball and baseball at Kennedy Catholic High School in Somers, where his courage and faith, displayed throughout his illness, inspired all those around him.

"Brendan was a great kid, one of the nicest, funniest, and most caring people we knew," said his teammates on the GoFundMe page started to help the family any expenses. "Nobody should have to go through what he went through especially at 17 years old."

Since the page went live online, it has raised more than $16,000 of its $20,000 goal.

"He has touched the lives of so many of us," he friends wrote. "#14 will forever play as an angel on the field."
