It's simply heartbreaking news out of Virginia. An 8-year-old cancer patient who found his true love the final months of life has passed away.

In a Facebook posting, David Spisak's family says he died with his parents and friends by his side. He had beaten cancer multiple times, but each time, it came back.

In the final months of his life, David found the true 'love of his life' in classmate, Ayla, reported Norfolk station WTKR. The pair fell for each other quickly.

"In art class, I told her I liked her and she just had a surprised face so we started dating," David said back in November. "She is kinda like the real Snow White because she is so kind to everybody, especially me because she loves me."

They had their first date in November. They went bowling. David's mom says he was so excited he forgot he was in pain.
