A Central Texas teenager has died after a battle with an aggressive bone cancer. 

Jeremiah Thomas, 16, was diagnosed with Osteoblastic osteosarcoma less than 20 weeks ago. He was a football player for Parkview Christian Academy.

"There's cancer, and all cancer is bad, it's devastating to anybody that goes through it, and then there's this kind of cancer," Jeremiah's father Rusty Thomas said. "This is one of the most aggressive, fiercest cancers on the planet."

Jeremiah was the youngest of 13 children. 

Before he died, Jeremiah spoke with Governor Greg Abbott about his wish to end abortion.

His funeral service is scheduled for Aug. 31 at 10 a.m. at Antioch Community Church.
