Elena Huelva, a social media influencer, died on Tuesday, January 3, 2022, after a long battle with cancer. The 20-year-old Spanish influencer died due to complications from Ewing Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer diagnosed in 2016. Elena Huelva often wrote about her illness and how she is fighting the potentially deadly disease. However, just before she died, she uploaded a photo with the caption:
“These are extremely tough days and they are getting more and more complex, but as you know I am stronger and more complicated. I want you to know that I won a long time ago.”
Elena Huelva’s disease, Ewing’s sarcoma, is an uncommon cancer that starts in the bones and can spread to other parts of the body, causing long-term side effects from treatment.
“They discovered a collateral disease in my trachea,” Elena Huelva recently told her admirers about her health and the spread of her condition.
Elena Huelva, a Spanish influencer, has published a lot of material about her rare condition and has more than 978,000 Instagram followers. On December 4, 2022, barely a month before her death, she shared a life update saying:
“My life has not been in vain. They found even more disease in my trachea, which is quite serious because we breathe there.
According to social media reports from Huelva, her health deteriorated and she was taken to hospital so that staff could care for her 24 hours a day, seven days a week. However, the doctors allowed her to spend Christmas at home with her parents, Manuel and Emu, and her 26-year-old older sister, Emi. Additionally, Elena Huelva’s family notified her fans and followers of her death through Instagram stories, writing:
‘Eva has been dancing and looking down on you from her star since this morning. Thank you very much.”
Fans are now remembering the young influencer who spent 7 years battling cancer.
Does Ewing’s sarcoma only occur in children and teens? More information about the condition is being researched.
Fans became concerned about Elena’s health as she revealed that her condition was getting worse day by day. However, when her family announced that she would not survive, social media users wanted to know if the illness she was suffering from was that bad.
Ewing’s sarcoma is a bone or soft tissue cancer that occurs mainly in teens 10 to 19 years old. In addition, only one in a million people is affected by this unusual condition, which can be fatal on several levels. Although the disease is curable, the disease and therapy can have long-term consequences. However, if the condition is detected early enough, a full recovery is possible.
In terms of signs and symptoms, individuals with this condition often experience a lack of appetite, fever, weight loss, and extreme exhaustion. However, recognizing them may take a series of tests, scans, and biopsies, which can help identify unusual malignancies and their subsequent treatment.
