The community is rallying behind the family of a young local boy who lost his battle with illness recently and passed away.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help fund the funeral of Christopher Chandler who lost his fight on June 5.

Chris was well-known around the region, especially for his involvement in the Mandurah City Football Club as club mascot.

"Taken at only 12 years old, Chris had put up the most amazing fight for 4 years with his parents, Anita and Colin by his side every single day," the GoFundMe page read.

"During this time Chris spent very long periods in hospital having many procedures including Bone Marrow and Stem Cell transplants, chemotherapy and radiation just to name a few.

"Chris always had a smile on his face even in the darkest of his days.  He loved catching up with friends at school and he was passionate about Soccer, both as a player and a supporter.

"Anita and Colin have not been able to work due to their devotion to their much loved son.

"The reason for setting up this page is to assist with the financial burden they now face."

All funds raised will go towards Chris’s funeral expenses.
