Back in December, the influencer posted a goodbye message to her fans and said in Spanish: “They found more disease in my windpipe, which is very dangerous, as you know, because that’s where we breathe. I don’t need to say much more.
“No matter what happens, I know that my life has not been in vain because I have fought and I have achieved what I want, to [bring awareness to the disease]... I want to make it clear that I’ve already won. With all the love and people I have by my side, I’ve already won.
“At the end of the day, life is about living and making memories with people, and I take away many good memories with lots of wonderful people and many other things. I would like to thank you for all the affection you have always given me. I love you.”
