United Kingdom — Demi Wright have died from a belligerent form of cancer. Physicians had previously determined that she was pregnant, in the end, the 22-years-old makeup artist had actually a 4.7-Inch tumor. Family members are currently receiving donations for Cancer Research UK.

She was an appreciated member of staff at Lancome in Williams and Griffin, said the Colchester Gazette. It appears that she first went to emergency service in November last year, after suffering abdominal pains. Physicians sent her to a maternity ward after they had detected hormones that are found in pregnancy.

It seems that she actually had an adenocarcinoma, which had already spread around her body. This type of cancer begins in glandular cells. Most cancers of the breast, pancreas, lung, prostate, and colon are adenocarcinomas, says the U.S. National Cancer Institute.

When doctors realized that Demi Wright had a 4.7-Inch tumor, she was transferred to Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge. Unfortunately, her health deteriorated and she died on February 23, after three weeks of being correctly diagnosed, as reported by the Colchester Gazette on Monday.

“It’s been devastating. When we found out it was terminal, she lifted herself up, she patted the bed and said, ‘dad, come and sit here’. She gave me a big hug and said, ‘it’s going to be okay’. The next day, she passed away.” Said Demi’s father Mr. Chris, a captain based at Merville Barracks, who was quoted as saying by the Colchester Gazette.

Demi, a former student of performing arts at Colchester Institute, was a beloved girl among friends, family and workers. A spokesman for Williams and Griffin said that she will be greatly missed and sent condolences to Demi’s friends and family.

Her funeral will be held on Monday at Colchester Crematorium Chapel in Mersea Road, said reporters at the Colchester Gazette. Guests are recommended to wear yellow while attending the ceremony.

Family members of Demi are receiving donations through Justgiving, which will be sent to Cancer Research UK, the world’s leading charity dedicated to fight cancer through research. By Monday morning, the campaign had received £3.303 (an estimated $4,735.05) from more than 204 people.
