Talia Joy Castellano is one the bravest 13 year olds you will ever know. Going by the YouTube name ‘taliajoy18,’ she is an inspiring artist who loves doing makeup tutorials even though she has been battling cancer for five years now.
Talia recently posted a video stating the news that had developed two types of cancers in her body. The doctors had recommended she get a bone marrow transplant but Talia has hinted that she may decide against it, which means she will only have four months to a year to live. This came as a shock to most of her watchers, but everyone is very supportive.
“Please please Talia don't ever give up to get better!! Please, don't stop fighting, please!!? I love you so much and I am praying for you! <3” was one of the many comments under the video of the announcement. Although Talia is not sure what her next steps are, but she promises to continue her videos, and says 'I hope you guys understand where I'm coming from, not wanting to do the transplant.'
But she promises to continue creating makeup tutorial videos for as long as she can.’ When I put on my make-up I feel like I can embrace those features that I really like about myself. I feel if someone's looking at me, they're looking at my makeup, not looking at my bald head’. Talia embraces her beauty and inspires others to be grateful of what they have. Truly she is one of the most influential people of our time.
