Charlotte Eades was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2013. She was just 16 years old. Charlotte started a YouTube channel in 2014 where she discussed cancer, fashion and beauty. Vlogging about her disease on Youtube transformed her confidence and eased her severe anxiety, so much so that she uploaded over 100 videos that have been viewed over 250 million times. Charlotte bravely faced her cancer with extreme enthusiasm over a 3 year period...but in the end Charlotte slowly waved goodbye to the camera and left this world at the age of 19. We're sharing her love of life:
A poem by Charlotte:
CANCER IN MY BEST YEARS... BUT I'M STILL HERE
'I've had purple hair, no hair, long, dark and shiny hair.
'Black lips, red lips, dried, cracked chemo lips.
'Boyfriends, new friends, never-seen-again friends.
'I've had alarm rings, earrings, family form a big ring.
'Gamma rays, X-rays, time soaking up the rays.
'No cares, home care, weeks in intensive care.
'I've had two years, one year, cancer in my best years.
'Tough times, more time, best support the whole time...
