She is an inspiration to so many people. The pain is over. Praying for her family and friends.
Many people of the “real world” would not recognize this girl, but this was 13-year old Talia Castellano of YouTube fame and was known for her makeup tutorial videos that her 781,600+ subscribers watched. Talia became a honorary CoverGirl thanks to the help of Ellen Generes late last year.
Today, Talia lost her 6-year battle with cancer.
A child in this country has a 1 in 320 chance of being diagnosed with cancer before their 21st birthday. Of all the funding that goes to cancer research, a mere 3% goes to pediatric cancer research.
You can help fund pediatric cancer research through organizations like the Make Some Noise pediatric cancer research foundation which distributes funding to some of the top pediatric cancer researcher centers across the US.
Reblog this post and help make some noise to spread awareness of pediatric cancer.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Man eats his 25,000th Big Mac
If you have ever seen the documentary Supersize Me about the guy who performs an experiment in which he eats only MacDonald’s food for 30 days, you might recognize the now 57-year old Don Gorske—the man whose diet consists of mostly Big Macs. In the documentary he was on his 19,000th burger, but now he has eaten his 25,000th Big Mac 39 years after his first one. That’s roughly 2 Big Macs a day every day!
Mr Gorske has been told by doctors that he is in “good health” for his age, although in 2003 a nurse was concerned that his cholesterol may have been too low.
Whoopsie Daisy of the Day: A man who told his co-workers he “wasn’t feeling lucky” enough to play the Mega Millions with them had no idea how right he was: The Albany IT worker ended up missing out on his share of the $319 million jackpot his office mates collected in last week’s drawing.
“They asked him twice,” Jill Cook, co-owner of a deli the winners frequent, told the New York Post. “They said, ‘Are you sure?’ and he said yeah, he was going to pass this time. I feel horrible for him.”
Forever to be known as that guy.
