UNITED KINGDOM. (THECOUNT) — Jehane Thomas GoFundMe: Jehane Thomas, a Tiktoker and social media influencer, has died suddenly at the age of 30.
The mother of two young sons died Friday after announcing a battle with optic neuritis, a condition that causes swelling of the eye’s optic nerve.
Thomas documented on social media her sudden crippling migraines which began less than two years ago.
“I was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis a few months ago after nearly 2 years of being told my migraines were stress related,” the 30-year-old revealed on March 5. “They then thought I had MS which was ruled out (for now) but now the pressure in my head literally takes me off my feet.”
“I wanna start my thank yous by saying a huge thanks to my mom and dad who are always there to help me with the boys,” the social media star wrote at the time.
“I hate being wiped off my feet with a migraine or sickness but they will always be the first ones to take the boys for a few hours and I’m so grateful to have you both.”
Her most recent video, which was posted on Wednesday, shows the mother-of-two laying in a hospital bed saying that she was scheduled for surgery and could barely move, reports NYPost.
“I am still waiting to go down for surgery. The reason they didn’t do it last week was because having fluids in me would solve the issue,” wrote Thomas in the in-video caption.
“I have 4 liters of fluids in me and my head this morning is horrific. I’m waiting to see if I can take one of my Frovatriptan before surgery because no other pain relief is taking this pressure or if I need to ride it out and hope the surgery gives me instant relief.”
“I can’t lift my head up without wanting to be sick and I’m unable to walk, I need to be wheeled everywhere,” continued Thomas. “That’s how bad this pain is.”
Thomas’ friend Alyx Reast created a GoFundMe to raise money for the funeral and her two children.
