It’s hard to believe the one of the biggest inspirations in my life, a role model, the girl who taught me everything is fine if you just keep swimming, is gone. Talia was such a huge person in my life, although I never got the chance to meet her. I started watching her in her beginning career on YouTube. I remember her being excited about 100 subscribers. I watched Talia grow on YouTube, through sick and health, and I always though “ this girls a fighter, she’s gonna kick cancers ass! ” but waking up to the news if her being gone, is heartbreaking. I started balling when I woke up to the tweet message. But I gotta remember, to just keep swimming. Talia is in a better place now, no suffering, no pain, just happiness and… Joy! Rest in Peace little angel, we all love you and know you’re looking down on all of us now, all of your supporters, the people that loved you through the Internet, watching you fight! Keep on rockin’! 😘✌😭🙏☝✨

"Having cancer has been a gift yet a horrible, horrible, terrifying thing. But I've gotten so many benefits from it...
Having a Youtube channel and having to inspire people and having people look up to me and explaining to you guys how I love and adore makeup, using it as my wig and having so much self-confidence to go out to the grocery store without a wig... it's just amazing."

This is Talia Castellano, a beautiful 13 years old who have been battling for cancer for 6 years now.

She started a youtube channel ( taliajoy18 ) with make up tutorial and her cancer battle. Sadly  is transitioning, meaning she is slowly leaving, I do not personally and I wish I knew.

I am lucky, I got to watch your videos and you are an amazing person, you should always be remember. 

Keep her family and friends in your prayers.

It is with a heavy heart that we share with all of you that Talia has earned her wings at 11:22am. Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven and please send your love and prayers to her family during this most difficult time. God speed little one, may you be free from pain and suffering, may your soul feel the light and love that you brought to so many of us on this Earth during the short time you were her with us. We will miss you more than you will ever know baby girl.

Fly high, angel. ♥

Rest in peace Talia. I remember first subscribing to you, you have been such an inspiration to me. Thank you for making me smile and laugh on rough days. I love you and never will forget you. You made so many people smile and happy. I hope you rest in peace angel, lots of love to family and friends. :( 

Praying for peace and comfort for this sweet girl. It absolutely breaks my heart to see that her long fight against childhood cancer is coming to a close soon. I hope little Talia knows how many lives she’s touched and how big her mark on the world will always be.
