Graeme said: “He was just a joy.
“Callum was such a smiley wee guy, he was sporty and loved his football.
“He was an active wee guy who liked going for walks with his dog Toby and climbing trees.”
It was three years ago when the family was hit with the bombshell that Callum had cancer.
Several tests were taken at the Schiehallion Ward at the Royal Children’s Hospital in Glasgow before it was confirmed Callum had Renal Cell Carcinoma, which is extremely rare in children.
Callum continued to live life to the full as much as he could and he managed to attend Moorfoot Primary in P6 and P7 before starting at Clydeview Academy.
By 2019 the cancer had spread and Callum needed more procedures and treatment.
Sadly Callum’s condition began to worsen recently and he took unwell on June 22.
He was admitted to hospital and passed away two days later.
