Who is Stacey Pentland: A TikTok celebrity, whose cancer story touched millions of hearts, has reportedly passed away after a long battle with the disease. Mother of four, Stacey Pentland from England had been documenting her life since 2020 when she was diagnosed with cancer, sharing glimpses of her final months with her 183,000-strong community on TikTok.

In April last year, when Pentland was 35, a sudden pain shot up her body while she was gardening. The pain did not subside and she rushed to the Royal Victoria Infirmary in Newcastle. After multiple tests, she was told she had rectum cancer that had already spread throughout her body.

“I have cancer in my rectum, stomach, liver, lungs, lymph nodes, just all over,” she told Chronicle Live last year following her diagnosis.

She revealed she had no symptoms to suggest there was something wrong with her health, save for the pain she felt right before she was diagnosed. On her TikTok and other social media pages where Pentland was tracking her journey, she attempted to raise awareness about cancer and encouraged followers for regular checkups.
