She battled back, and was declared cancer-free in 2014 after 15 months of chemotherapy. But a year later, she was diagnosed with leukemia, which her family believes was a side effect of her chemotherapy.

A desperate drive for stem cells, which included a one-litre donation from her mother, proved fruitless.

In March, doctors diagnosed Hannah with brain tumours. Following an invasive biopsy and chemotherapy, she developed a bacterial infection and went into septic shock. She was taken off life support, according to the family.

"Surrounded by family we told her how beautiful and loved she was. We do not know if she could hear us but we didn’t care. We kissed her over and over again. We told her everything we could to make life easier and have no regrets," Ervin wrote.
