The Ohio 2-year-old who got an early Christmas this year because doctors said he wouldn’t live until December had died.

Brody Allen’s father, Todd, posted the news on Facebook Friday.

"Good morning. It is with the deepest sadness I want tell you that Brody has lost his fight. This morning at 6 am Brody passed quietly, and peacefully in the arms of his mother Shilo. He did not suffer. He was surrounded by his family and I have no doubt many angel's. While our sadness is immeasurable and we will miss his smiling beautiful soul, we are also comforted in knowing that today our son has touched the face of God.

Today heaven welcomed home our little super hero.

Fly high little man.. Until we see you again. We love you."

Last month, hundreds of people lined the streets of Colerain Township to put on a Christmas parade for Brody. Neighbors decorated their homes and Brody rode on a float in the parade.
