CoverGirl Talia Castellano dies at 13 after six year battle with cancer

Talia Joy Castellano, the young girl who inspired thousands with her YouTube make-up tutorials and became an honorary face of CoverGirl, has died at the age of 13 following a 6 year battle with cancer.

Talia's family announced her death on her Facebook page last night. They wrote:
'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.'
Talia was diagnosed with with stage four neuroblastoma cancer in February 2007, and later diagnosed with leukemia. The young girl, who was so full of life, was told by her doctors mid last year that she had four to 1 year to live. May her soul rest in peace. See more photos of her after the cut...

I was wondering Linda if you were going to talk about Talia.....i cried so much yesterday when i heard the news.....Talia was such a beautiful strong lil girl.....you should watch her cancer vlog where she announced she had a second type of cancer, she was trying to comfort her fans.....i remember her last vlog in May while in hospital and i just weep...she spoke about her pains and anxiety and am happy she doesn't have to go through that again.
Talia you have earned your wings with the angels...Just keep swimming babe, i'll always remember you. Love you to bits...

Ellen, you gave this young girl a wonderful time by making her an honorary cover girl. Because of you, many and unfortunately, we will never know now many, benefited from Talia and how she promoted being beautiful.

Ellen, you are a true woman. Too bad we don't have more like you.

Talia, you will always be remembered, your smile will always bring a smile to everyone and your youtube video's will live on forever.

One lesson learnt from Talia, she refused to look at d circumstances around her n refused to b weighed down by it, she held on to life, livig each day like she neva had cancer or leukamia, wat an inspiration she was to many. So shld each n every1 of us, jst cos u dnt ve wat u desire, doesn't mean u cnt mk do wit all dt u ve ryt nw. Live life, in appreciation of Wat God has given to u. Love y'all LIBers
