    This video may be hard for some to watch, but it is the reality of
    #ChildhoodCancer. Talia’s Mom is asking Congress to #StepUp for more
    funding so that Talia could have had another 71 years.

    Y should I pray for talia? I am going to pray for every single person with
    cancer not JUST the famous ones.

    Talia’s not really dead.
    Her soul and spirit and mark on the world will be on this Earth forever.

    it’s sad to think she died on my birthday, while I was laughing and
    celebrating she was suffering and God called her to his presence, I will
    never celebrate my birthday the same way again!!! R.I.P Talia I will never
    forget you!

    I had the same cancer as Talia had :(

    They need to leave this girl rest in pace and stop making money out of girl
    that’s no longer in this world.

    This is honestly heart breaking. I started tearing up a little bit when you
    said she wouldn’t have those “milestones”. Not getting married, going to
    prom, and graduating highschool. But honestly, I feel like Talia is in a
    better place where she isn’t suffering anymore. I’m terribly sorry for your
    loss, and Talia’s subscribers – or friends are here to support you.

    No parent should have to bury their child. I am truly sorry and I wish that
    I could do something to take your pain away. Talia was not just talented
    but she had a beautiful soul and was an amazing person. We miss you very

    All kids with cancer or any other type of disability need to be given
    opportunities like she did.

    I’m so sorry, she was so special.

    She was trying not to cry and it was making me want to cry

    Your always a role model for other moms to stay strong because Talia was
    always like ‘hey I’m Talia and I’m awesome!’ And never acted as if she had
    cancer. If I had to get rid of anything I think it’d be cancer.

    Beautifully said, praying for you. Talia truly was magnificent!

    I love you Talia, forever. You were always so nice to me commenting on my
    videos being super positive and supportive and a great friend and person.

    This wasn’t hard to watching lol I have no heart it seems :/

    • Juliana Kindell
    • 26th July 2014

    That was really hard to hear. I started sobbing

    • beautywithkat22
    • 26th July 2014

    heartbreaking, Cant imagine the pain. I started watching Talia later in her
    youtube career since I had just joined Youtube myself. But I instantly fell
    in love with her spunk and charisma. I went back into all of her videos and
    just couldn’t believe how mature she was and took every bad news in stride.
    I am sure she drew that strength and fighting spirit from you. I will share
    your video to get the word out.

    Dear Mrs.Castillano, first i am deeply sorry for your lost and I am glad
    that you are making such great strides to bring awareness to this horrible
    disease. I had just started my youtube channel this year but, over the past
    two years I have been enlightened by your daughter’s charming personality.
    Talia’s life has been a huge inspiration to me and she is one of my major
    role models. Not only because we share the same zodiac sign but because she
    taught me a very valuable lesson: that life is so precious yet temporary so
    we must make the best out the moments within our grasp. Though I have never
    been personally affected by cancer I know that Talia’s story is very
    important and I hope her legacy can live on for years to come.

    Poor thing. She passed away while I was in my musical theater program last
    year. It’s starting again for this year tomorrow morning. I’m going to be
    the best that I can be this year, just for Talia. I hope she’s watching
    over me while I work on the play and perform it. God bless you and your
    amazing family xxx just keep swimming and everything will be fine.

    Talia had mature soul an she took her hard journey with such a grace and
    patience. She changed many lives, she kept many people inspired and
    motivated. This little girl was and still is one of my heros 🙂 Im sure you
    are making heaven pretty now baby girl. Watch over your mommy, sissy and
    all your friends while they help to raise awareness of childhood cancer
    like you did :)

    I still cant believe Talia has been taken from us, her amazingly strong and
    positive spirit made me forget the severity of her cancer and made me think
    it was impossible that she could ever lose her battle. But now that she
    has, she has not been forgotten. She is such a strong girl and a huge
    inspiration for me, I can’t explain how much respect I have for her and her
    family. Its so heart breaking to listen to your story and i’m sure there is
    nothing anyone can say to settle anything. But I just want you to know that
    her life and what she chose to accomplish with it has brought hope,
    inspiration and joy to so many others including myself and I will always
    have time to remember Talia for the truly beautiful and special person she
    was <3

    I can’t watch the whole video, I just can’t :'( I love you Talia, we think
    of you everyday. I’m praying for you and your family.

    You don’t need to cry. Be strong in honor of Talia. She was strong for you
    and everyone. I know you want to but I choose to be strong and not let loss
    control me. These words describe how I feel
    Don’t judge a life by it’s length. Judge it by how it was spent.

    Talias life was spent well. I am an avid advocate and I know how much it
    means to you

    My heart goes out to your family and I love that you shared your story with
    us. I’m sure Talia is looking over you being proud that you’re continuing
    on her legacy. I hope and pray the best for you.
