R.I.P Talia Castellano

Heaven gained a spunky new angel this morning. After a 6-year long battle with cancer, Talia earned her 
wings and is no longer suffering the pain that plagued her for far too long.

Talia was widely known for her makeup skills that she shared with the world through her YouTube channel, 
famously quoting "makeup is my wig." After appearing on The Ellen Show, she was also crowned as a honorary CoverGirl. 
Talk about a huge achievement at such a young girl - one that was no doubt earned.

What really sparked the hearts of millions was her vibrant personality and optimistic outlook on life. 
She was an inspiration to many people and I know without question that she will be deeply missed.
R.I.P sweet angel. We were blessed to have you here, even for such a short time. The world is a more 
beautiful place because you were here. Your legacy will remain and, eventually, there WILL be a cure.

Did you know that childhood cancer takes the lives of 2,500 children every year? That is WAY too high of a number, 
especially since only a small percentage of the The National Cancer Institute budget is set aside for childhood cancer 
research.  Please take a quick minute to sign the petition to increase federal funding for childhood 
cancer research to eliminate the risk of pediatric cancer.

  2. Saw this on the Today show this morning and the tears were definitely flowing. Saw her on Ellen a few months ago and fell in love!
