British TikTok star Jehane Thomas has sadly passed away at the age of 30.

The TikToker was a mum to two young children and was known for making relatable content around parenting and life with  3 year old Isaac and  21 month old Elijah.

Jehane passed away last week after she had experienced months of debilitating migraine headaches, it was confirmed by her friend Alyx Reast in a GoFundMe listing.

“Despite suffering from migraines and bouts of illness for several months, her passing was totally unexpected and we are all absolutely heartbroken,” Reast wrote.

Hailing from Doncaster, the mum of two was also a small business owner, running her own stationery business, boasting nearly 82,000 followers on TikTok.

Earlier this month, she began sharing her battle with migraines over the last two years and revealed she had been given the diagnosis of optic neuritis.

“I was diagnosed with Optic Neuritis a few months ago after nearly 2 years of being told my migraines were stress related,” she wrote. “They then thought I had MS which was ruled out (for now) but now the pressure in my head literally takes me off my feet.”

The illness saw her brought to hospital only days later where she stayed for a week, but returned soon later due to her pain.

In her last post to TikTok, she shared that she was waiting for surgery, saying: “I’m waiting to see if I can take one of my Frovatriptan before surgery because no other pain relief is taking this pressure or if I need to ride it out and hope the surgery gives me instant relief.

“I can’t lift my head without wanting to be sick and I’m unable to walk, I need to be wheeled everywhere. That’s how bad this pain is.”

Sharing the news of her passing, Reast wrote in the GoFundMe: “I’ve started this page in the hope of raising some money so her beautiful boys can have the best childhood, make memories and make sure they are comfortable.

“Nothing will bring the boys their mum back, but we hope it will bring some relief to her family, knowing how loved and supported they are.

“Jehane — I promised I’d do what I can for those boys, so that’s what I’m vowing to do. I love you … “
