We send our thoughts and condolences to Jael's loved ones during this hard time. "She brought so much light to people".

But her happiness was cut short following her shock diagnosis two months ago on October 2 when she received news she had terminal breast cancer. She also noted that the cancer was incurable and had spread aggressively throughout her body. Doctors only gave her a "few months" to live.

Strauss died just two months after revealing that she had cancer. "I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013" ― a reference to her overcoming substance abuse that year.

Jael appeared on Dr Phil in 2012 to discuss her battle with addiction.

Jael sadly passed away on Tuesday at 11am after being unconscious for a few days, the outlet reported.

Jael's friends Melissa Lebet, Cody Haynes and Sarah Covey went on to set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of Jael's treatments - which had raised over $19,000 (£14,900) at the time of her death.

"First night in hospice", she wrote on Facebook. "So many things I never knew about life", Jael reportedly wrote at the time.

"America's Next Top Model" star Jael Strauss, pictured January 12, 2009 in NY, died after a battle with breast cancer. She loved donning various wigs.

In October, she revealed she had incurable stage IV breast cancer.

Guys, I heard about #jaelstrauss passing today and I'm so sad about it.

Our thoughts are with Strauss' loved ones during this hard time.

'We are never too broken to be put back together. "Good God!" she wrote in August. Service work feels better than the greatest high. "I'd be dead if it weren't for all the love and forgiveness I've been showered with by my friends and my family". Because of this gift, I have no friends, only family.

"At the very least, please simply share this post and ask others to do the same so we can get it across the world", they added before thanking everyone for their "love, support, and prayers through the journey".
