7 YouTube Stars Who Tragically Passed Away From Cancer
It genuinely makes us sick to think of how many YouTube stars died when they were teenagers. Of those beautiful humans we previously discussed, four of them passed away from cancer, a sick and tragic disease that so many have unfortunately been affected by. But, sadly, there are more YT stars who also succumbed to the illness.
Some of the YouTubers who passed away after bravely fighting cancer actually documented their journey on their channels, while others were more private when it came to discussing the disease. But no matter how they handled the extremely unfair and tragic situation, they all defined grace and courage. Rest in peace to all these video stars who are no longer with us.
Talia Joy Castellano
Talia Castellano uploaded her first makeup tutorial onto YouTube when she was just 12 years old, and had already been battling neuroblastoma for five years. The tween quickly began using the slogan, 'makeup is my wig,' to describe how she used beauty to help her keep a positive attitude throughout her cancer treatment. After going into remission a few times, Talia's cancer came back with more vengeance and was deemed terminal. The wide-eyed teen sadly passed away on July 16, 2013, just about a month shy of her 14th birthday.
