Inspirational Teen Fashion Blogger Loses Her Battle With Cancer, Even Giselle Bündchen Is Sad

Fashion blogger Karina Xavier may have only been 16 years old, but she had already taken the fashion world by storm! In 2011, the teen blogger was diagnosed with bone cancer and started her blog that same year to make girls the same age “feel beautiful no matter what.” She went into remission after a few treatments, but the bone cancer sadly returned and she lost her battle on Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014. But before she gained her angel’s wings, Karina was a strong and fashionable teen who had more than 185,000 Instagram followers on her @chicbykarina account and a huge following thanks to her unique blog.

Even supermodel Giselle Bündchen was a fan after they met at a Dana Farber Cancer Institute even in Boston. The two were both born in Brazil and called Massachusetts home, which is what helped form their bond. The model even visited Karina the day after Christmas last year to get some beauty tips from the fashionista and show her support. Karina chronicled her visit on her Instagram account and after hearing the news, Bündchen posted a picture on her own Instagram account to express her condolences on Karina’s passing.
