Talia’s battle with cancer has inspired many and her myriad of YouTube followers are a testament to this. Fellow CoverGirl Ellen DeGeneres tweeted eariler:

This year I met a very special girl, and today we lost her. Sending my heart to Talia’s family. I’m so sad.

Talia had found out her cancer had spread to her bone marrow in August of last year and was quoted as saying:

The journey of having cancer has been amazing, but every journey has to have an end.

 

Your journey has inspired us all. You will be missed. R.I.P. Talia Joy Castellano (August 18, 1999 – July 16, 2013).
