Cade Watts’s cause of death?

Cade Watts, the 15-year-old son of the former Werribee and Western Bulldogs star Jason Watts, has died of cancer after a long battle.

Cade was identified with Ewing’s Sarcoma in May 2021 and immediately began a nine-month intensive chemotherapy and radiation regimen. 

Cade was declared in remission after first-line chemotherapy. However, recent scans revealed that the metastatic tumors had returned after only five months.

Cade was back on a toxic chemotherapy regime, which his oncologist had made clear was palliative only and not a cure.
