London, Europe Brief News – The British social-media star, who usually documented her life as a mother to two children under age 4, has died.
British TikTok star Jehane Thomas, 30, had been suffering from migraines for years.
The mother of two young children died unexpectedly last week after experiencing months of debilitating migraine headaches, her friend Alyx Reast confirmed in a GoFundMe listing started in her memory.
“Despite suffering from migraines and bouts of illness for several months, her passing was totally unexpected and we are all absolutely heartbroken,” Reast wrote.
The social-media star from Doncaster, England — who was also the co-owner of a successful small stationery business — has nearly 82,000 followers on TikTok, and usually documented her life as a mom to 3½-year-old Isaac and 21-month-old Elijah.
But recently, her feed had featured glimpses of a difficult battle with her illness.
Earlier this month, Thomas shared that she had received a diagnosis of optic neuritis, after suffering from migraines for close to two years.
“I was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis a few months ago after nearly 2 years of being told my migraines were stress related,” she wrote. “They then thought I had MS which was ruled out (for now) but now the pressure in my head literally takes me off my feet.”
Her discomfort sent her to the hospital days later, where she was admitted for a week and discharged March 12, but her pain had her soon back in the facility.
