A TIKTOK star revealed days before her “sudden” death in several heartbreaking videos that she was “scared” and “fighting so hard”.
Mother-of-two Jehane Thomas, 30, is believed to have died on March 17 after suffering from migraines that were so painful she could not get up.
On TikTok and Instagram, Jehane was known for sharing footage of her preparing packed lunches for her two boys, as well as cleaning up hacks and groceries.
She also documented her health issues, which saw her repeatedly hospitalized and endured excruciating wait times for treatment.
In a clip posted Tuesday, she described how difficult it was having her kids watch her being sick and “shaking” like she was drunk.
“No one takes me seriously,” she said through tears.
“I keep saying it but I’m just so sick of it and if anything I’m so scared because it’s my head and it feels like my head is about to fall off.
“I just don’t know what to do.”
In another shared two days before her death, Jehane said she was “terrified” of being transferred to the operating room to treat her headache.
Just hours later, she said, “I’m struggling so much this morning.”
Against footage of her lying in a hospital bed, Jehane, who recounted how she was denied surgery a week earlier, wrote: “I’m still waiting to be able to have surgery.
“The reason they didn’t do the surgery last week was that fluids inside me would solve the problem.
“I had four liters of fluid in me and my head is awful this morning.
“I’m just waiting to see if I can take one of my frovatriptan pills before the surgery because no other pain reliever takes that pressure, or if I have to endure it and hope the surgery will give me immediate relief.
“I can’t raise my head without wanting to feel nauseous and I can’t walk – I have to be rolled all over the place it’s so bad the pain.”
Jehane, who has 87,000 TikTok and Instagram followers and millions of views, “died suddenly” two days later, her best friend Alyx Reast said.
She added: “I feel like I can’t breathe. We still don’t have any answers.
“You are all the best in the world. i will miss you every day
“Thank you for being relentlessly you. You are my hero.”
You are all the best in the world. I will miss you every single day.
As well as social media, Jehane, from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, also ran craft business Print and Pack UK.
A post on her Facebook page described the mother as a “powerful force” behind the company.
It said: “P&P wouldn’t be what it is today without you, your enthusiasm, the relationships you’ve built with so many people and the lives of all the people you’ve touched and inspired by just being… you are yourself… and the absolute TikTok Queen that you are.
“Life will never be the same without you and neither will P&P, but we made a pact to do our best to continue growing our successful business and support your boys for as long as P&P exists – and I already know we will.” doing that also got the support of your followers.
“Thank you for your continued support. Jehane will live on through her boys, P&P and her followers.
“Let’s make them proud. I love and miss you always.”
Tributes from elsewhere have poured in for the “kindest soul” who is survived by her sons Isaac, three, and one-year-old Elijah.
Friend and co-parent TikTok star Kelly Medina Enos said: “My heart is broken, for you, for your family, friends and the boys.
“Fly high my angel. Life is so short. I love you.”
Leah Rose Roberts added: “I really can’t believe how cruel life is.
“Jehane, you were one of a kind and the kindest soul I have ever met.”
And Theresa Parker said: “I cannot tell you that I am shocked to learn that my friend Jehane has passed away suddenly.
“I know she will be sorely missed by those who knew her.”
Others remembered her as “incredible and strong” and a “beautiful, inspirational woman who will never be forgotten”.
A fundraiser was started to support Jehane’s family.
