This video entitled “Dying to Live, Living to Die in 4:42 minutes” shows clips of Charlotte over the three years she fought cancer. This heartfelt video has recently gone viral after being posted on reddit.
Charlotte passed away at age 19 in 2016 and February 19 marks the anniversary of her passing.
“It was Charlotte’s goal in life to help others, she educated secondary school pupils about cancer and volunteered her time tirelessly as a real, honest and uniquely interpersonal vlogger,” Charlotte’s brother said shortly after her passing. “Through her videos Charlotte made an inspirational and definite difference to people’s lives.”
