Influencer reveals her struggles right before her death
In 2019, the 20-year-old influencer was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma, a rare type of cancer.
Just before she passed away, Elena revealed that she was struggling with her health in recent weeks to her Instagram followers.
"Today I woke up not in the best way. These are very difficult days, they are becoming more and more complicated, but as you know I am stronger, and more complicated," she wrote in a post dated January 3, the same day she died.
Subsequently, the influencer left one last message for her fans in her Instagram stories.
"I want you to know that I already won, a long time ago," she wrote.
"We continue, always," she added.
Elena had first revealed her cancer diagnosis in December 2019, noting that 'it was a roller coaster' for her.
