On 16 July 2013, Talia Joy Castellano of Orlando, Florida, died at age 13 of neuroblastoma and preleukemia. She responded to being diagnosed with stage-four neuroblastoma at age seven with wit and intelligence and a love of make up — and with the aesthetic sense to use make up with the sensibility of an artist. On YouTube she posted tutorials on how to use make up. Because of chemotherapy, she lost her hair, but she responded by having “Make up is my Wig” written on her head. The following message appeared on 16 July 2013 on her Facebook page: “#‎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.” In September 2012, Talia appeared on Ellen Degeneres’ daytime talk show and learned that she had been chosen to be an honorary CoverGirl.
