A TikTok influencer has died from cancer, after initially ignoring symptoms of the disease.

Anca Molnar, who was known for her work with celebrities in her country of Romania, died on Tuesday morning (June 11).

Shortly before the 35-year-old's death, she shared a poignant post with her followers, writing: "I came, lived beautifully and left for another world. I fought as best I knew how and with all my strength... Until the last drop of HOPE.

"I leave my gratitude in my heart for how beautiful my life was and my smile will remain a testimony that I lived it to the fullest," she added.

The content creator accumulated a loyal fanbase on social media after sharing her makeup with celebrities and local influencers.

She amassed 8236 followers on TikTok and 34.3K followers on Instagram, both under the handle @makeup_anca.

Molnar's friend, Alina Radi, revealed that the late TikToker was diagnosed with a brain tumor after she ignored a series of severe headaches.

"She had been experiencing excruciating headaches more frequently," Radi said. "Initially, she didn’t think much of them, because that’s how we are, but she found herself struggling to carry out her daily tasks consistently."

According to the Mayo Clinic, one of the major signs and symptoms caused by the disease may include headache or pressure in the head that is worse in the morning, headaches that happen more often and seem more severe, and headaches that are sometimes described as tension headaches or migraines.

When the influencer was diagnosed by doctors in Romania, they said that there wasn't much they could do due to the progression of the tumor so she decided to fly to Turkey for oncological treatment, per Daily Mail.

While there, Molnar had brain surgery twice and underwent several rounds of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

She went into remission after her first brain surgery, but a second tumor was discovered a short time later, forcing her to have another surgery to remove it.

Despite her illness, Molnar remained stoic in her battle, sharing her treatments on Instagram including snaps of her with her head bandaged and in hospital gowns.

Molnar's funeral took place on Thursday and was attended by her close family and friends.

Her heartbroken husband, Claudiu, shared some loving words in a statement, writing: “We say goodbye, our love! You gave us the best years of our lives. You made us strong men who will never forget you,” as cited by Romanian website Spy News.

“We pray that you watch over us proudly from heaven!" he continued, “Me and the fruit of our love, Patrick, say goodbye to you today.

“Thank you for fighting so hard for us. You leave only among people but not from our hearts! Smooth flight, my love!” Claudiu concluded.

Our thoughts are with Molnar's family and friends at this devastating time.
