TikTok star Jehane Thomas, known for sharing glimpses of her life as a dedicated and loving parent, tragically passed away at the tender age of 30, following a prolonged battle with debilitating migraines that plagued her for several months.
The untimely death of Jehane Thomas, a beloved TikTok personality, has left her family and friends reeling with grief.
Jehane, a mother of two, shared snippets of her life as a mom on the popular social media platform. Her infectious personality, creative videos, and engaging content quickly gained her a vast following of devoted fans.
However, tragedy struck when Jehane’s health began to decline, and she began documenting her struggles with debilitating migraines that left her in excruciating pain for extended periods of time.
Alyx, a dear friend of Jehane, who was deeply impacted by her loss, confirmed the heartbreaking news of her passing. In an effort to provide support and comfort to Jehane’s grieving family, that same friend took the initiative to create a GoFundMe page for the England native’s family.
“Jehane Thomas was a 30-year-old mum of two boys when she suddenly passed away on 17/03/2023,” the page’s bio reads. “Despite suffering from migraines and bouts of illness for several months, her passing was totally unexpected, and we are all absolutely heartbroken.”
Alyx’s heartbreaking message about Thomas’ passing continued, “Her two children, Isaac (3, almost 4), and Elijah (1), have been left without their mum. I’ve started this page in the hope of raising some money so her beautiful boys can have the best childhood, make memories and make sure they are comfortable. Nothing will bring the boys their mum back, but we hope it will bring some relief to her family, knowing how loved and supported they are.”
Jehane’s final TikTok video, which was posted mere days before her untimely demise, revealed the severity of her condition. Having previously disclosed that she was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis, a condition characterized by inflammation that damages the optic nerve, Jehane candidly spoke about her recent hospitalization. She shared that despite being hospitalized for six days the previous week, she had to be readmitted due to complications with her health. The heartbreaking news left her fans and loved ones in shock and disbelief, as they had hoped and prayed for a miraculous recovery.
“I am still waiting to go down for surgery. The reason they didn’t do it last week was because having fluids in me would solve the issue,’ she wrote in her video. “I have 4 liters of fluids in me, and my head this morning is horrific. I’m waiting to see if I can take one of my Frovatriptan before surgery because no other pain relief is taking this pressure or if I need to ride it out and hope the surgery gives me instant relief.”
In her final Instagram post, which was shared before her readmission to the hospital, Jehane, shared her thoughts about being away from her beloved sons.
“It’s been a really challenging week, not just physically but mentally,” she wrote. “I’ve missed these two so much and feel like they’ve both grown up so much whilst I’ve been away. I may be home, but I’m still struggling with these migraines as nothing was really done to help them after a whole week of being there, and I’d rather self-medicate at home with these around me then me left in a bed on my own all day & night, so I may not be fixed, but I’m not giving in.”
