A Honolulu television station, KHON, is reporting that 14-year-old Waipahu boy Tiloi Teejay Mamea has died.

They say, Teejay died at LBJ hospital this morning. Samoa News is working to verify this story and details will be posted as they become available.

TeeJay arrived in American Samoa a week ago after Make a Wish Foundation Hawaii made his visit possible. Teejay was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in March.
