We were deeply saddened to hear the news that Talia Castellano passed away earlier this week, but a special friend of hers is still making sure that her dreams come true and that her memory lives on.
Shortly before her death, the little makeup guru had teamed up with cancer survivor and fashion designer Urbana Chappa to create their own clothing line called That Bald Chick!
Well Urbana took to Twitter when she heard the sad news and let everyone know that she would finish what she started with Talia:

This is truly heartbreaking!
You may remember seeing Talia Castellano, a special teen who had been battling cancer for years.
She appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show with her makeup tutorials and showed such courage, despite battling a very serious disease.
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:

For those of you who aren't familiar with Talia Castellano, this girl is TRULY an inspiration! The 13 year-old has been battling with cancer for most of her life, but that hasn't stopped her from doing what she does best: Fashion!
Talia has become a YouTube sensation for vlog on makeup tips, and she's grabbed the attention of Ellen DeGeneres and has even been named an honorary CoverGirl!
So when designer Urbana Chappa heard about the little fashionista, she just had to meet her for herself:
