I first saw Talia on the Ellen show. If you haven’t seen it, check it out Ellen Meets the Inspiring Talia. If you aren’t touched by this little fireball, then you need to check your heart. I started looking at her YouTube channel for really awesome makeup tips. This Cover Girl really knows how to do some cool stuff with makeup.
Talia Castellano was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroblastoma on February 14, 2007. She was cancer free for 13 months but relapsed in Sept. 2008. She was cancer free for almost 2 years, but relapsed on August 13, 2010 and again for a third time on April 8, 2011. In mid-2012 Talia’s cancer spread to her bone and she developed pre-leukemia. Talia died at age 13 on July 16, 2013.
When I was looking for a picture to use with this Bible quote, I was having a hard time finding just the right one and then I came across Talia’s picture. She didn’t have hair to adorn and she wore very little makeup. Frankly, she was just a little girl. But, she had such a beautiful spirit and her beauty showed through her larger-than-life personality.
So, to honor her, I am using her beautiful picture. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends.
