The mum-of-one shared her fears and hopes with her followers on Instagram throughout her battle, and advocated for awareness about the disease.
Days before she died, she shared a series of family photos to Instagram and wrote: “It wasn’t a guarantee that I was going to be home this Mother’s Day”.
She addressed her two-year-old daughter as she continued: “I want to be strong and beautiful for her. I want to show her how to move throughout this world with compassion, strength, vivacity, humor and joy like my Mother showed me.”
Marnie’s family is yet to release a statement following her passing.
