This is truly heartbreaking!
You may remember seeing Talia Castellano, a special teen who had been battling cancer for years.
Well, it’s with a broken heart that we bring you the terrible news that she’s passed away. Her Facebook page was updated with this message on Tuesday:
"#prayfortalia It is with a heavy heart that we share with all of you that Talia has earned her wings at 11:22am. Please lift her beautiful soul, her beautiful light to heaven and please send your love and prayers to her family during this most difficult time. God speed little one, may you be free from pain and suffering, may your soul feel the light and love that you brought to so many of us on this Earth during the short time you were her with us. We will miss you more than you will ever know baby girl."
Ellen was also saddened and tweeted:
This year I met a very special girl, and today we lost her. Sending my heart to Talia's family. I'm so sad.

Even though the world has lost an incredibly special person, she will be far from forgotten!
Talia will always live on through her courageous story and the empowering tutorials she left behind for people.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends!
