‘Girl with red lipstick’ loses fight against cancer
Zeynep Bilgehan - ISTANBULA girl suffering from stomach cancer, who was well-known on social media for the courage, strength and humor she displayed during her battle with the disease, died in a hospital on May 13.
Fisun Yurdusever, 21, was known as “the girl with red lipstick” on social media, and she had vowed to continue to live her life as usual despite the cancer, which had forced the removal of several of her organs, including her stomach. After chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment, it was revealed that the cancer had spread to her skeletal system. Her followers on social media sent messages of condolences.
On Feb. 5, Yurdusever said in an interview with Ayşe Arman in daily Hürryiet that she had never lost her hope and she would regain her health and leave the hospital.
“After the cancer, I continued to upload my pictures to Instagram. These were positive pictures but sometimes I was depressed too and I shared it too. But I have always stood tall and strong. I have never lost my joy of life,” she said.
