America's Next Top Model star Jael Strauss has died aged 35 from stage 4 breast cancer - just two months after being diagnosed.

Strauss continued to update fans about her condition, with her last post on November 22 revealing she'd entered hospice care.

In return for her kindness, pals at the recovery center organized the "F-k Cancer-Love Like Jael" fundraiser, where people who donated $20-$50 could receive free "F-k Cancer" or "Jael Love" tattoos, which about 20 people received.

"I was gonna write some long thing but some of you guys deserve to know, On October 2nd I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer", Strauss wrote.

After receiving treatment for her addiction and getting clean, the model said she was "the happiest I've ever been in my entire life".

She ended the Facebook post with: "I don't want to die".

A GoFundMe page had been set up earlier this fall to help pay for Strauss' medical expenses.

The Canadian Cancer Society estimates that an average of 70 Canadian women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day; an average of 13 women die every day. "It has metastasized and spread beyond the breast tissue". "Or death. So many things", she said.

And now host Tyra Banks has taken to social media to send her love.

She had begun chemotherapy after her diagnosis but decided by Halloween to stop the treatments and entered hospice care by Thanksgiving. On Oct. 5, she posted on Facebook that she had rapidly progressive metastatic inflammatory breast cancer. We don't know for what reasons, but man was she one of the strongest I knew. "Or death. So many things".

"Today I have [been] five years sober".

"I wish I could of seen her once more", tweeted Gonzalez, 32. She definitely has been through a lot. Please be kind towards one another, we are all going through our own battles!

She revealed the heartbreaking cancer diagnosis two days after she found out.

"She was such a fearless soul".

Speaking in 2013, she revealed she'd not touched alcohol or drugs since the show. "She has offered everything she has to people in need; no matter what their situation, she is always ready to help with an empathetic heart and nonjudgmental spirit".
