Influencer Elena Huelva’s gut-wrenching last video message before dying of cancer

A 20-year-old social media influencer recorded a heartbreaking final message for her followers just days before she died of cancer.

Elena Huelva from Spain was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, rare bone cancer, at just 16 and gained nearly 1 million followers on Instagram sharing her journey.

A family member confirmed that Ms Huelva died on Tuesday in an Instagram story posted to her page, NY Post reports.

“Since this morning, Elena dances and looks down at you from her star,” they wrote. “Thank you for everything.”

Her final video clip amassed over 970,000 likes as fans and admirers mourned the courageous young woman’s passing.

From her hospital bed she bid adieu to fans after explaining that her condition had deteriorated significantly.

“Things are not going well,” lamented an intubated Ms Huelva, while struggling to choke back tears. “They found more disease in my windpipe, which is very dangerous, as you know, because that’s where we breathe.”

The brave young woman added that she didn’t “need to say much more.”

Despite the dismal prognosis, Ms Huelva claimed that she wanted to “make it clear that I’ve already won.

“I know that my life was not in vain, because I fought and got what I wanted,” declared the patient, referring to her wish to raise awareness about the disease.

The influencer was even allowed to spend Christmas at home with her family, including her parents Manuel and Emi and her older sister Emi, 26, despite her worsening condition.

In her final post, on January 1, Ms Huelva shared a photo of herself holding hands with a loved one. “Today I woke up not in the best way, in fact, nothing good, a big scare,” the caption read.

“These are very difficult days, they are becoming more and more complicated, but as you know I am stronger, and more complicated!”

Ms Huelva signed off with her catchphrase and the title of her 2022 book: “My desires win.”

Her Instagram followers were devastated by her loss.

She even received tributes from Spanish celebrities, including TV presenter Sara Carbonero, singer Manuel Carrasco and actress Ana Obregón, whose son also passed away from Ewing sarcoma.
