A day later, a pre-planned post was shared by the family, confirming to Cleary’s 25,800 followers that she had passed away. The post featured an image of Cleary portrayed as an angel, adorned with a flower crown and proudly displaying her surgery scars.
The heartfelt caption read, “Hello Beautiful People. If this is being posted, then my time on this earth has come to an end. Forever 38. I just wanted to leave a final message for all of you, beautiful people who have lifted me up, cheered me on, supported me, caught me when I fell down, and been there for me as friends from near and far.”
Cleary went on to express gratitude to her followers for seeing, hearing, and helping save lives. She made a heartfelt request for her legacy to live on, urging everyone to continue sharing her message and spreading much-needed awareness. She emphasized the importance of not letting her memory or story fade away.
