YouTube Star and Activist Claire Wineland Has Died Aged 21

Inspirational YouTuber Claire Wineland Dead Following Lung Transplant

The American, who amassed more than 250,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel, died on Sunday in hospital surrounded by family.

Claire Wineland, who inspired hundreds of thousands of people with her YouTube videos, social media posts, and lectures chronicling her lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis, died Sunday of a stroke a week after she received a lung transplant.

Her family later made a decision to take the vlogger, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at birth, off life support.

Wineland and her family started the foundation following a routine surgery in 2010 after which she almost lost her life, according to the organization's website.

Ms Wineland rose to fame through her use of social media and speeches to convey a positive yet realistic message around issues such as her illness and her mortality.

Over the course of her life, she gave hope to millions of people with her inspirational talks, videos, and the creation of her foundation, Claire's Place Foundation. "Medical staff said it was the most peaceful passing they had ever witnessed". According to a statement issued by her foundation, Wineland was recovering from the procedure when she suffered a massive stroke on August 26 because of a blood clot.

"In Claire fashion, she is an organ donor", the foundation said in its statement.

All of which means that one place at Euro 2020 will go to a team from League D , comprised of the continent's traditional minnows. Each league will have a path of its own and each path will feature two single-leg semi-finals and one single-leg final.

When she was 18, the doctors told Claire that she will not make it without a lung transplant. They had been on the receiving end of that call just one short week ago.

The foundation also thanked Wineland's many fans and supporters for their thoughts and prayers during this tough time.

Wineland credited the support of her friends and family with helping her pull through. "Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your massive wonderful out pouring of love", McHolm said. We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

"She was one red hot spark of inspiration and joy, wasn't she?" the statement concluded. Rest in peace, Claire.

The California native was diagnosed at birth with cystic fibrosis, a genetic condition that overloads the organs with an excess of mucus.

Wineland knew her time was limited but it did not stop her from living a full life. After founding her own non-profit when she was just 13-years-old, Wineland became a speaker, activist, and social media star, quickly winning over the hearts of many with her precocious wisdom and goofy sense of humor.
