The family of an adored TikTok star who has passed away after a brave battle with cancer say she was “gorgeous inside and out”.

Fiona Jane Lagan, of Teesside, was known as FeeFeeJane on the social media platform where she had been documenting her battle with throat cancer and life with a tracheostomy tube.

Fiona’s family also described her as a “caring and thoughtful soul who would give you her last penny”.

“Every time she entered a room it was like someone had jumped out of a surprise birthday cake,” said heartbroken mum Jan Laden.

Tragically, after the throat cancer had travelled to her tongue, Fiona died surrounded by her loved ones on Monday, March 13, age 44.

In a touching request, she asked that, after her passing, her long, blonde hair be donated to the Little Princess Trust, reports Teesside Live.

Fiona Jane was diagnosed with throat cancer three years ago and underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

She was in remission but sadly the cancer returned, and on June 16 last year, doctors gave her the devastating news that they believed she had six to 12 months to live.

Mum Jan said: “She was like Wonder Woman. She fought and fought. Fee Fee was so full of life and was an absolutely gorgeous girl inside and out.”

Having toasted Christmas and New Year with her family, she fought on and celebrated her two brothers, Lee and Dom’s, birthdays before she took ill after suffering a fall.

“She was at her home with me, my husband, her brother and her family when she died,” said Jan, of Coulby Newham.

“It’s a promise I made and I kept. You know when you have a big birthday cake and someone hides in it and they pop out and surprise you – every time she walked into a room that is what it was like. She was the most thoughtful, caring person.

Fiona’s videos brought joy to her 44,000 TikTok followers

“She wrote a bucket list – we went to see Michael Bublé, went to do the Cube in Manchester, she went to Liverpool for a weekend, and back to Blackpool where she lived for some time.”

Pubgoers from the family’s local raised funds to send Fiona and her family on holiday to Lake Windermere with her three nephews Louis, Leo and Teddy.

Jan said: “She was one of these girls – it had to be Valentino, Vivian Westwood or Gucci. She was always dressed from head to toe immaculate. She had a heart of gold. Even after she passed away on Monday – I’ve been sorting her drawers and she’s left me a Mother’s Day gift, my husband a birthday card for July.

“Anyone who ever met Fee Fee couldn’t get enough of her. There’s been so many flowers and cards delivered to our home – from people who Fee Fee has met from all over. She was that kind of girl where you just couldn’t help but love her.”

Fiona had more than 44,000 followers and 430,000 likes on TikTok.

Sharing her fun-loving videos, where she’s often dancing to some of her music, Fiona went out of her way to make others happy, Jan said.

“Even when we were in hospital the doctor came in and said ‘oh it’s Fee Fee off TikTok’,” said Jan. “When we went to the Chinese one night to pick up some food and she got out of the car and there were two girls who started shouting because it was FeeFee Jane from TikTok – she was like a Kardashian.

“She would have given you her last penny. She’s irreplaceable and her whole family will miss her so much.”

Fiona, who has two brothers Lee and Dom and a half-sister Nikki, grew up in Ormesby and lived in Blackpool for some time before returning to Teesside.

She planned her own funeral and decided she wanted to donate her blonde hair to charity, the Little Princess Trust.

“When she asked in the funeral parlour if after we’ve seen her they could cut her hair to be donate, I just fell apart. I didn’t really want her to donate her hair, she’s always had her long hair,” added Jan.

“But when I sat and thought about it – it’s her request and I wouldn’t go against that. We’re so proud of her and she always wanted to help others.

“She was my best friend. Our friends and family have been a huge support to us and I can’t thank them enough for everything they have done for us and for Fee Fee.”
