On Instagram, he penned: “It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness I share the news of the passing of my sweet, amazing, beautiful wife Melanie.

“If you’ve been following our journey I’m sure you were, like us, hopeful she could defeat this insidious disease.

“Over the past few months things have been progressively getting worse and we’re thankful that we made it to this point through the holidays and tried to make every moment count.”

He continued: “We are short 9 days of our 16 year anniversary. My family, our doctors, our nurses and especially Melanie fought until the end and did all we could do to avoid today, but that is not our path.

“Let me reassure all those rooting for us, Melanie fought like a warrior queen.”

After hearing the news, many of her fans took to the comments and shared their condolences.

One fan said: “This is certainly one person I’ve never met but will really miss. She was and always will be amazing.”

“Anyone who followed her YouTube channel will miss her so much,” added another. “But, she will live on forever in the people she inspired. Your entire family will forever be in my thoughts and prayers.”

A third wrote: “So sorry to read this-  I have made her crochet baby blanket for all my grandkids! Working on one now. RIP.”

Before her death, she was diagnosed with epithelioid angiomyolipoma, which is a type of sarcoma.
