*One year following her diagnosis of stage 3 cervical cancer in February 2023, popular YouTuber Jessica Pettway has passed away. This diagnosis came after she was previously misdiagnosed with fibroids.

TooFab reports that Reyni Brown, the sister of beauty influencer Jessica, confirmed her passing in a post on Instagram that has since been made private.  

“It’s my birthday today, and the only thing I could ever wish for is for God to bring you back on this earth. I lost my beautiful big sister 2 days ago and my heart has never felt pain like this,” Brown wrote, sharing a photo of herself and the mom of two,  according to E! Online.

Brown said her sister brought her “so much wisdom, prayed for me, and helped me become a better mother.”

She added, “Life will never be the same without her crazy laugh, pranks, or jokes. Loosing [sic] a sibling feels like a connection between us was destroyed. I love you with all my heart.”

Pettway disclosed her stage 3 cervical cancer diagnosis and health issues in a lengthy Instagram post last summer. Per Heavy.com, she wrote, “I took these photos a few days ago, and it’s currently my favorite photo of myself. It brings me so much joy to see how far I’ve come, because a few months ago I received devastating news. I was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer. I don’t even know where to begin, but I want to share why I’ve been gone for so long, in hopes that at least one person is encouraged by my story. So here it goes…”.

The post continued:

Last June, I was having intense vaginal bleeding. And when I say intense, I mean I was literally bleeding out. I called around and asked other women if they experienced this before and majority of them said they have. I thought, well maybe this is a ‘normal’ thing that women go through. I was experiencing extreme fatigue, weakness and just not feeling like myself. But again, I accepted this as a “normal” symptom that most women go through.

Well, on July 1st 2022 at 4am, my husband found me in the bathroom unresponsive and not breathing. I had literally passed away. He called on Jesus to bring me back and I came back. I was rushed to the hospital, where they told me that the extreme blood loss was due to ‘fibroids.’ My Gyno made it seem like it was so normal and common. I didn’t think much of it, however I was passing clots the size of a placenta, which was really alarming. They kept me overnight and released me the next day. Fast forward to July 22nd, I was hospitalized again for the same thing. Again, the medical professionals treated it like it was not that alarming since it was just a ‘fibroid.’

The bleeding eventually stopped, but was replaced with labor like pains. My life became so limited. On December 31st 2022, the bleeding came back. And it would not stop. I was hospitalized again January 7th and was there for a week. I was told I could not get surgery to remove this ‘fibroid’ due to my lack of blood supply. My hemoglobin level was at a 4. I had to receive 10 blood transfusions during my hospital stay. They recommended I do a biopsy.

Pettway’s YouTube channel boasts over 229,000 subscribers, and she has 150,000 followers on Instagram.

Per E!, she leaves behind her husband and their two minor daughters.
