BROKEN HEARTS’ Child Star passed away today. When you find out who she is, you will cry

Irish TV star Saoírse Ruane has tragically passed away at the age of 12 following a four-year battle with cancer, her family confirmed in a statement. Her devastated mother, Roseanna, shared the tragic news on Instagram: “When there are no words. After a long, courageous and dignified battle, our hearts are shattered to tell you our beautiful little Saoirse took her final breath in our arms on Tuesday. “We thank you our lovely followers for holding Saoírse and us in your thoughts these past few weeks. We think of you all today also as we know how much Saoirse was loved by the nation and the effect she had on so many people’s lives. Cancer you stole her from us, the life we had and our dreams. Life will never be the same.”

The Late Late Toy Show star was diagnosed with cancer in 2019 after complaining of an injured ankle. In 2020, Saoírse underwent an amputation of her leg due to a cancerous Osteosarcoma tumor in her tibia, which posed a life-threatening risk. The President of Ireland paid his respects to Saoírse and tweeted: “President Higgins has sent his deepest condolences to the family of Saoírse Ruane from Kiltullagh, Co. Galway, following her passing at the age of 12. Saoírse’s strength and warmth was an inspiration to all.” Saoírse had already seen a few of her dreams come true, such as visiting Old Trafford to watch Manchester United play and going on her dream vacation to Disneyland.
