Fans are mourning the death of Haley Odlozil after it was announced she passed away aged 30.

On Friday, Hayley's husband Taylor took to his personal Instagram to share the unfortunate news that his wife had died.

Haley suffered from Stage IIIC ovarian cancer, which she was diagnosed with almost a decade ago, and documented her journey of strength and resilience via her Instagram @fromfightingtothriving, where she has over 284,000 followers that have been stood by her.

"It is with unbelievable sadness that I tell all of you my sweet Haley has passed away," the heartbroken husband wrote alongside a beautiful family photo. "I cannot begin to describe the amount of [heartache] & grief myself & our entire family is experiencing."

He continued: "I never knew my heart could physically hurt. I've never seen someone fight so hard to live. Her love for me, Weston [their son], her family, & her friends is what has kept her going for so many years, especially the last 8 months. I'm so blessed to have had Haley a part of my life for 16 years. It has been my true honor to take care of her. I am so grateful for the lessons I have learned from Haley."

The 30-year-old influencer used her platform to raise awareness about the terrible disease and how it altered her life.

After adjusting to the diagnosis, the mom-of-one started sharing her journey in the hope that others suffering from similar experiences would be able to find comfort in her positivity.

Taylor went on to say that as Hayley's other half, he's "seen every moment", including the "happy ones & the sad ones."

"One thing I can tell you, she suffered greatly fighting this disease that slowly tore her body apart for the last 8 years. The thought of her being completely healed in a body with no pain & no scars in heaven makes me so incredibly happy for her but so overwhelmingly sad I'm not there to see it," he said in the caption of the post. "My fear of death is so much less knowing I will get to see her one day completely healed. I cannot wait for that day. Im so thankful I got to see Haley fulfill her life purpose of becoming a mom."

Taylor also went on to add that despite being completely broken by this news, he's more concerned for the welfare of the couple's son.

"My heart breaks most for Weston. I don't think he will ever fully understand what he meant to Haley. He was everything to her," he wrote before thanking everyone for their support.

Taylor also revealed that even though Hayley had a "large following", the family would be keeping funeral arrangements "private" and that they would be taking time away from social media in order to grieve the loss of their loved one.

Speaking to PEOPLE before her tragic passing, Haley opened up about the importance of her work, especially when it comes to other women suffering from ovarian cancer.

"The symptoms are very vague — cramping, back pain, all things that women experience on a daily basis for many different reasons. So to have the platform to share and raise awareness of it, that's very important to me," she told the outlet. "I want people to see that this is a real disease, and this happens to young women. Had I been listened to more, maybe it wouldn't have escalated to what it was by the time I got diagnosed."

She also added that her husband was a shining light during dark times, saying: "Taylor has always said to me, 'I'm not gonna let your pain and your suffering be for nothing.' And so he's created this platform for us that we've been able to share awareness and make a difference."

Hayley's legacy shall continue to live on.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones during this time.
