Fans cross off Talia Joy Castellano’s bucket list wishes
Five days before the inspirational young YouTube star lost her battle with cancer, she made a bucket list of things she wanted to do; she only checked off a few.
Even at 13 years old, Talia Joy Castellano was a hero to the millions of people who watched her YouTube makeup tutorial videos. Full of spunk and wisdom well beyond her years, she bravely shared the trials and tribulations of pediatric cancer. When chemotherapy caused her to lose her hair, she sported a bald head proudly, turning to makeup to boost her self-confidence.
Five days before Castellano lost her six-year battle with neuroblastoma and leukemia, she made a bucket list of things she wanted to do. She was only able to tick a few things off the 70-something item list.
Fans and supporters around the globe decided to make the young woman’s dreams come true and finish her bucket list.
