On Wednesday, sad news emerged about a social-media influencer based out of Brazil. 24-year-old Nara Almeida passed away.

The young social media star had over 4.6 million followers on Instagram. Over the past year, Almeida had been documenting her journey with stomach cancer.

Sadly, Pedro Rocha, Almeida’s boyfriend, has now confirmed Nara’s death. On Tuesday, he posted a photo of the two of them together with a tear-jerking tribute.

He said, “Unfortunately Nara passed away last night, after so much fighting I wanted to have her forever, but she deserved to rest. Her death leaves a huge void in my heart, but it will live forever within me, it will always be my inspiration, making me see the world in a better way.”

He continued, “I’m sure she will continue transmitting her strength to many people because that was her goal. Rest in peace, my love.”

The couple had been dating for two years, and a year into their relationship, in August 2017, Almeida found out about her stomach cancer. Pedro opened up about an important life lesson that his late girlfriend taught him.

He said, “A message that summarizes what I learned from Nara is: ‘Live life, enjoy it to the fullest and do not apologize for being who you are.’ I’ve had this incredible person by my side.”

Throughout her struggle with stomach cancer, Almeida would post pictures of the process on her social media. She would typically include some sort of positive life message along with it.

At one point she said, “Only I and God know what I’ve already been through, how many traumas, how many sleepless nights crying in pain, only he and I know! I want it to end soon God, you understand my heart, help me give me the strength and strength to continue I beg you.”

Please be praying for Almeida’s family and her boyfriend during this difficult time. Share your prayers here!
