A YouTube beauty guru has released an emotional video saying goodbye to her viewers after a terminal diagnosis left her with just days to live.
Samantha Jaelle uploaded an emotional video to her channel on September 14, titled “My Final Farewell” where she revealed she had been diagnosed with an aggressive cancer.
The 49-year-old’s videos on make-up and fashion have earned Ms Jaelle over 15,000 loyal followers who love her confidence representing older women, who she often felt were forgotten about by the beauty industry.
The mother of four and grandmother of seven told her online followers that she had woken up with a severe headache last Tuesday and when she received no relief from paracetamol, she went to the emergency room where a CT scan showed an aggressive brain tumour.
Days later Ms Jaelle was told it was terminal and was advised to spend her short time left with loved ones.
In the tearful video Ms Jaelle told her subscribers that her dream was to spend her final days travelling around the beachside with her family and friends in a motorhome.
Her husband of 30 years, David Last was just off camera to help as the tumour had already begun to impair Ms Jaelle speech and thoughts.
She asked viewers to donate whatever they could to help support her goal via a GoFundMe page set up by her husband, which at the time of publication had exceeded the original goal and had raised over $A27,000.
In a recent update to the funding page, Mr Last revealed the road trip will begin on September 20 with family and friends joining along the way.
Mr Last said they will kick off the trip in style with the first stop being somewhere “Samantha has always wanted to visit.”
Agatha Christie's Beach House on Burgh Island in Devon is the first destination and is where two of the writers famous novels were written.
“Your kind donations have allowed us to book this fantastic beach house for two nights, we wanted to start this adventure in style and you have allowed us to do that. Thank you so much.” Mr Last wrote.
He promised to keep Ms Jaelle’s fans updated as they head off on the trip of a lifetime.
