Anca Molnar, celebrity makeup artist, 35, dies from a brain tumour after ignoring common symptom

A celebrity makeup artist sadly has passed away from brain cancer after ignoring a common symptom.

Anca Molnar, who was known for her work with celebrities in her native Romania, was diagnosed with a brain tumour over a year ago after suffering with a series of headaches. 

According to her close friend Alina Radi, the influencer from Timișoara had ignored the headaches, which is often a sign of a brain tumour, for some time. 

It was only when the pain became severe and they started affecting her daily life that she went to the doctor.

After undergoing intensive treatment plans for more than a year, Anca sadly passed away on Tuesday and will be laid to rest in her hometown today.

Shortly before her death, she shared a heartbreaking post with her TikTok 630,000 followers.

She wrote: ‘I came, lived beautifully and left for another world. I fought as best I knew how and with all my strength… Until the last drop of HOPE.

‘I leave my gratitude in my heart for how beautiful my life was and my smile will remain a testimony that I lived it to the fullest.

When she was initially diagnosed doctors in her native Romania said there wasn’t much they could do to help her due to the progression of the tumour.  

So Anca decided to fly to Turkey for oncological treatment, where she had brain surgery twice and underwent numerous rounds of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

After her first brain surgery her tumor went into remission, however a second tumour was found a short time later and she was forced to have another surgery to remove it.

Am venit, am trăit frumos și am plecat spre o alta lume. Am luptat cum am știut mai bine și cu toate puterile mele… Până la ultima picătură de SPERANȚĂ. Vă las în suflet mulțumirea pentru cât de frumoasă mi-a fost viața și zâmbetul meu sa va rămână mărturie că am trăit-o din plin. Mi-am dorit de atâtea ori sa iau telefonul în mână pentru ultima dată și sa va las un ultim îndemn: trăiți frumos și trăiți din plin! Eu, Anca Molnar am plecat…Acasă. Dar de acolo, voi continua sa va veghez mereu! Rămâneți cu bine și căutați-mă printre stele. Din când în când, am sa va fac cu ochiul!

Brain Cancer Symptoms

Brain tumours can affect people of any age, including children, although they tend to be more common in older adults.

More than 12,000 people are diagnosed with a primary brain tumour in the UK each year, of which about half are cancerous. 

The symptoms of a brain tumour vary depending on the exact part of the brain affected.

Common symptoms include:

  • persistently feeling sick (nausea), being sick (vomiting) and drowsiness
  • mental or behavioural changes, such as memory problems or changes in personality
  • progressive weakness or paralysis on one side of the body
  • vision or speech problems

Sometimes you may not have any symptoms to begin with, or they may develop very slowly over time.

Treatments for brain tumours include: 

steroids

medicines to help with symptoms

surgery

radiotherapy

chemotherapy
