In lieu of flowers, Talia Joy Castellano's family are asking fans and supporters to donate to the late teen’s favorite cancer charity, the Huffington Post reports.
The 13-year-old who made a name for herself as a beauty blogger and YouTube sensation (with millions of views for her makeup tutorial videos) died on Tuesday after a six-year battle with neuroblastoma, an aggressive form of cancer – as well as leukemia.
Throughout her battle with cancer, Castellano worked closely with BASE Camp Children’s Cancer Foundation, a Florida-based nonprofit organization that helps cancer patients and their families with meals, parties and support groups.
On its website, the organization features a touching image of Castellano hugging a smaller cancer patient, as another looks on. All three are wearing hospital gowns.
