“Goodnight, sweet prince/and flights of angels sing thee to they rest #granvilleadams #oz,” Tom wrote on Instagram along with a throwback photo of Granville.

Back in January, Tom and fellow Oz star Dean Winters launched a GoFundMe campaign to help Granville and his family cover his medical expenses. The campaign raised over 100,000, exceeding its goal of $69,500.

“As many of you know, our friend and brother Granville Adams has been diagnosed with cancer,” Tom wrote on the campaign’s page. “In only a few months, the medical bills have skyrocketed to astronomical levels. Not only does he have to battle this ruthless disease, but now he has to fend off the hospital bills the insurance company refuses to pay. In this quarter alone, the unpaid bills have piled up to $69,550. We want to gather together and show Granville our love by clearing this quarter’s bills, giving Granville concrete support in his fight against this vicious disease.”

Our thoughts are with Granville‘s loved ones during this difficult time.
