2-year-old Alabama boy, battling a rare medical condition, passed away over the weekend. Eli Thompson was a source of inspiration to thousands of people, including his family, as he struggled to survive without a nose.

Eli Thompson died Saturday night at a medical center in Mobile, his father Jeremy Finch told AL.com.

Finch described his son as “very, very bright and happy, always smiling and giving everybody fist bumps.”

A heartbroken Finch told AL.com, “He touched a lot of people’s lives.”

“A lot of people cared about him,” he said.

Eli, who had just turned 2 in March, was born with a rare facial abnormality called arrhinia, which means he was born without a nose, a condition so rare that it only affects one in 197 million births, AL.com reported.

 Funeral arrangements are pending.
