A cause of death was not announced, but the star battled cancer for months.

Whitham frequently documented her struggle with the disease.

In November, she announced she was being treated at a cancer center in New Haven, Connecticut.

At the time, she said she was, “Kicking butt [and] stay positive.”

Whitham revealed that she had gained weight and was about to “hit” her home gym.

In December, she shared a picture of a cap with the words “F**k Brain Cancer” emblazoned across the front.

Tributes were paid to Whitham after her death.

One person said she was “such a fighter and an inspiration to many”.
