WHOLESOME World founder Freyja Hanstein has died aged 36 after a battle with a brain tumor – following her husband’s death from cancer.
Hanstein founded the NHS-approved health app Wholesome World after losing her husband Lars to abdominal synovial sarcoma cancer a month after getting married in 2014.
The following year, she herself was diagnosed with a brain tumor at just 26 years old.
Wholesome World said: “It is with the deepest sense of loss that we share the sad news that Freyja Hanstein, the creator of Wholesome World, has passed away.”
“She died peacefully in her sleep on the morning of November 16th as a result of a recurrence of cancer.
“The fact that you are reading this is a testament to Freyja’s immense strength, positivity and perseverance.
“She founded Wholesome World after losing her husband Lars to cancer and being in remission after her first battle with a brain tumor.
“With this project, Freyja has transformed these dark experiences into something positive and nourishing.
It added: “Her love and creativity created Wholesome World, and we are immensely proud to be here to support her and continue what she started.”
“Freyja found beauty in the world wherever she went, and joy in sharing that beauty and reflecting it back to make those around her happy.”
“She talked about what she loved: a walk by the sea, a delicious meal, a song, a poem, a cheeky smile.
“She was the girl with flowers in her hair and a kind word for everyone.”
“She was the woman who lost everything and always got back up.
“She is the daughter, the sister, the irreplaceable friend who will be missed, mourned and loved by all who knew her.”
