Ellen DeGeneres revealed the heartbreaking news that 13-year-old cancer-stricken CoverGirl starTalia Castellano had passed away earlier today.
The comedian took to Twitter to express her condolences, saying, “This year I met a very special girl, and today we lost her. Sending my heart to Talia’s family.”
“I’m so sad,” she added.
Talia was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to address her brave battle with neuroblastoma for over six years. She also explained to the TV host that she was recently diagnosed with pre-leukemia.
The charismatic teen got her first taste of fame after inspiring hundreds of thousands of people with her makeup tutorials on YouTube. In fact, the youngster garnered over 15 million views on her candid clips alone.
I think that I am just one of the masses who fell in love with Talia on Ellen. When Ellen made her an honorary Cover Girl my own heart was filled with love. This 13 year old girl had a personality that seemed to light up a room even when she was battling terminal cancer. I was so sad to hear of her passing this week but as her family said…. “Talia finally got her Angel wings”
Here is one of her amazing make-up tutorials…….
