HUBBARD, Ohio -

A Hubbard Elementary third grade student has passed away following a long battle with an illness.

9-year-old Memphis Vance passed away Thursday.

Vance battled a disease called billary atresia, a rare disease of the liver.

As a baby Vance had a liver transplant and was awaiting a second before his passing.

Hubbard Elementary students came together with "Pennies for Memphis" where students brought change to donate to Vance's family.

Hubbard students raised more than $9,000 for the family.

Calling hours are scheduled for Sunday, June 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Stewart-Kyle Funeral Home.

The family asks that memorial contributions be made to the family for medical expenses in lieu of flowers.
