Randy Gonzalez, best known as one half of the TikTok duo Enkyboys, has died at age 35 after a cancer battle.

Gonzalez, who rose to fame posting hilarious lip-syncing videos with his son, died from Stage 4 colon cancer on Wednesday, while in hospice care, according to TMZ

The TikTok star and his 7-year-old son Brice amassed 15 million followers on TikTok. 

The late 35-year-old revealed he had Stage 4 colon cancer last April and said he had been diagnosed six months prior. 

The social media star said he was given two to three years to live, but doctors told him that chemotherapy treatment could extend his life for five more years. 

Gonzalez created a GoFundMe to help pay for treatments after claiming he was denied care at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center because they did not accept his insurance.

Randy Gonzalez said he ‘feels good’ in a December update

Alongside his wife and son Brice, Gonzalez gave his fans a health update in a TikTok video last month. 

“It’s going good,” he said, “Except I have to change my chemo because it’s not working right now, but I do feel good.”

In a November video, Gonzalez explained why he hadn’t been posting much content, explaining that he was having a rough time with his cancer treatment. 

The late TikTok star said going through chemotherapy was “horrible.” 

“Cancer sucks. It sucks the life out of you and makes you feel like you have nothing to live for but in reality, you do,” he said in the video.

Despite his condition, Gonzalez was cheerful and optimistic and said, “You have to be strong to fight cancer and beat it, and I want to be a testimony of this in another year or so when I’m still alive. when I beat it.”

“He will be missed, but never forgotten. My heart goes out to the entire family. Dios te bendiga ??.”

Gonzalez’s son, Brice, was cast on the new NBC show Lopez vs. Lopez, which stars Lopez.
