It's clear she left her mark on her followers.

Shaw was a popular fitness Instagram influencer, boasting a staggering 224,000 followers on the platform at the time of writing.

But, in August 2016, her life completely changed.

The star received a diagnosis of stage 4 ovarian cancer.

She underwent chemotherapy followed by surgery, during which her spleen, appendix, uterus, and part of her colon were removed.

Amazingly, a year later, she announced to her followers that she was officially cancer-free.

However, devastatingly, Shaw's cancer returned.

"This is not the news I wanted to tell y’all...Sadly, there is cancer in 4 of my lymph nodes," she wrote on Instagram. "I actually found out on Monday from my online report that was sent to me but today it was confirmed that there is small activity of cancer."

She was determined to fight until the very end.

"I’ve had cancer in 3 out of the 4 spots before and I beat it; this time is NO DIFFERENT!" she said. "I will win and I will beat this beast again."

Sadly, however, her health continued to decline.

Shaw's last Instagram post before her death was on Dec. 23 in which she shared a photo of herself in the hospital. "Hey y’all! It’s been a minute since my last update but things have been going well!" she wrote. "I’ve been in and out of the hospital with a liver issue that has been fixed and now I’m on a feeding tube which is totally okay. Your girl needed some help with food lol. I start chemo on Tuesday and should be going home today or tomorrow, just in time for Christmas. Keep the prayers coming and keeping sending all the light. 🦋#cheystrong," she captioned the picture.

On Monday, her family released a statement on her Instagram page sharing the horrific news that she had passed away.

The post included a statement from Shaw's mother, Darci. "My heart is breaking today, our baby girl lost her long battle with ovarian cancer. She fought until the bitter end. She is a true warrior and survivor. She will be truly missed and will forever be in my heart," she said.

The family thanked fans for all their support over the years.

"Thank you all for your support and encouragement over the years. If there’s one thing Cheyann taught us is that no matter what battles we face, we can always find a reason to smile through them. 🦋 ✨"

This is absolutely devastating news. Rest in Peace, Cheyann.
