YouTuber shares heartbreaking final message before passing away aged 31

YouTuber Sara Holmes passed away at age 31, and shared a touching message with fans.

YouTuber Sara Holmes, also known as 'HojuSara', shared a final message with her fans before sadly passing away from leukaemia.

The popular creator, who had more than 342,000 subscribers on the platform, had been diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia back in May after going to the doctor for back pain.

On 5 September, Sara's fiancé Hyun announced the devastating news that she had died, sharing some sweet photos of them together.

Accompanying the collection of photos, Hyun wrote: "Since goodbyes are sad, let's say Bbyong instead. Bbyong!"

The Korean phrase is a slang word for 'bye', referring to the sound of someone vanishing in an instant.

Sara, an Australian native, was fluent in Korean and had used her YouTube channel to document her life in South Korea, where she wound up meeting her fiancé.

The couple finally travelled to her home in Brisbane after being away for almost two years due to strict Covid restrictions. Not long after they arrived, Sara was diagnosed with cancer.

As well as announcing the heartbreaking news on social media, Hyun took to Sara's YouTube channel to update her subscribers.

Through tears, Hyun addressed his late fiancée's followers, revealing that Sara had left a final message for them before she passed.

Sara's partner Hyun addressed her fans.

Speaking in South Korean, with English subtitles at the bottom of the screen, Hyun revealed that Sara had told him not to be sad when she died, but he asked: "How can I not be sad."

Hyun also revealed that doctors had only given Sara less than a week to live back in August, but she managed to hold on until 1 September.

He then got out his phone to play an audio message that Sara had recorded before she passed.

In the recording, she can be heard saying: "If you're listening to this, I love you all. If you're listening to this, I'm watching you all from the sky.

"I wanted to make it to the end. I will be taking care of all of you. Every time you see something beautiful, that will be me. This is not the end.

"I'm still fighting. I am fighting. I wanted to spend more precious times with all of you. I wanted to send you all a message, but this came faster than I expected.

"I have made so many good friends. I guess I have used up all of my luck. I have no regrets. I wanted to spend more time with you, but I will be watching over you."

Heartbroken fans have flooded social media with tributes to the beloved YouTuber.

Hyun has confirmed that he plans on learning English so that he can live in Australia long-term and hopefully spend more time with Sara's parents.
