The father of the well-known TikTok duo Enkyboys, Randy Gonzalez, passed away after a battle with cancer.
According to a source close to the family, Randy passed away Wednesday morning in hospice care after battling colon cancer. This is a medical condition about which he regularly updates his followers.
In April, Randy told his supporters he had been diagnosed with his illness and given a prognosis of two to three years to live. He claimed that chemotherapy might add another five years to the situation.
The internet sensation started a GoFundMe to raise money for his medical expenses. He claimed to have been turned down by a University of Texas cancer clinic because they wouldn’t accept his insurance.
In addition to raising awareness about colon cancer on social media, he and his son Brice also benefited immensely from their endearing father-and-son relationship.
In November, Randy provided his followers with another update and detailed everything he had been through in a short period of time, intending to serve as an example for others in a year, “when I defeat it.”
