Ruben, you may have been here on Earth for only a moment, but you left behind lifetimes of love. It is with the heaviest and saddest of hearts that we write this...our little superhero buddy, Ruben passed away this morning and gained his heavenly angel wings. Ruben was just 7 years old and battled the ugliest, meanest, cruelest, and most devastating forms of pediatric cancer, DIPG. Ruben's battle went on for a whole year, and he fought tenaciously with bravery and determination the whole way through. At Just 7 years old, DIPG left Ruben unable to walk, talk, and even eat. Ruben loved spending time with his family, Minions, watching movies, playing video games, art, and without a doubt loved his web hero BFF, Spider-Man like no other. Ruben, we miss you so very much. You brought so much love, purpose, meaning, and above all else, friendship to our lives. We are comforted knowing you are in heaven, pain free, and enjoying all your favorite stuff, however, there is a whole in our heart, now that you are gone that will never go away. But, you can be sure that from that hole, an amazing love will flow from it and it will be so strong...strong enough to help change the world, and in your honor, also help more little heroes who need us most. To The Contreras Family, we are always here for you and we love you. Thank you for giving us the honor of being a part of your son's courageous journey. We pray for your strength, your comfort, and your peace during this most difficult time.

We ask that you all please join us in praying for Ruben and his family's strength, comfort, and peace during this time.
