A makeup artist in the last stages of cancer is making recovery and she’s been documenting her experience in the last few months.
Buntricia Bastian became an internet sensation a few months back after her plea to have her ashes returned to Nigeria when she passes on hit headlines.
The Instagram post shared on the 3rd of June read:
It is with deep sorrow and much regret that I must say goodbye to all. My lungs are gone and my heart is only working at 30%. I for the first time have ran out of words to say other than I love you and I already miss you. IF I could put all the love that I feel right this minute from the people that I have already said my goodbyes to I would live to be 150 years. Nigeria my husband is bringing my ashes home so welcome him”.
Interestingly, the professional makeup artist and wig maker has made a drastic recovery. She revealed that despite the diagnosis, she has since left ICU, can walk around and just got admitted into rehabilitation center. Buntricia also revealed that she no longer needs surgery.
