A mother-of-four who was bravely documenting her battle with terminal cancer has passed away on Thursday.
37-year-old Stacey Pentland from Newcastle, England, was a doting mom and an inspiring young lady who was diagnosed with lymphoma in early 2020.
Following the shocking diagnosis, the mother began her grueling treatment and created a social media channel through which she was raising awareness about the illness in a bid to help other victims and find some comfort.
For more than a year, Stacey continued to closely monitor the progress of her terminal cancer and the deterioration of her mental health while informing people about the medical equipment she required and the treatment she went through.
Since the creation of her TikTok profile, Stacey racked up more than 200,000 followers and over 5.5 million likes.
On Thursday, however, her family shared a sad message on the influencer’s account.
“It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that our beautiful Stacey passed away at 20 to 2. Can I ask you to respect the family’s privacy at this difficult time,” the text in the clip that featured the mom’s picture read.
The sad news comes months after Stacey opened up about her mission in an interview with Chronicle Live.
“I never in a million years thought this would happen to me, but it can happen to anybody,” the mother-of-four said earlier this year.
“I started it because I felt unbelievably alone when I was diagnosed and I didn’t want anybody else to feel that way. Now I’ve had thousands of messages of support, people saying ‘because of you I went to the doctor, they found my cancer early.’
“At first it was overwhelming, some of the messages were heartbreaking, but it is great that they’ve got tested, they’ve had a smear test or got something checked and now they have a chance.”
According to the reports, Stacey spent her final moments in the presence of her loving family. May she rest in peace.
