What happened to Jeane Passos dos Santos? Beauty influencer and mum-of-two, 34, suddenly dies after suffering rare blood disorder.
The beauty industry has once again lost one of its budding influencers.
Jeane Passos dos Santos, 34, from Brazil, had a promising career and was best known on Instagram where she had a growing number of followers.
She passed away in November from a health complication.
What was Jeane Passos dos Santos’ cause of death?
Jeane Passos dos Santos died aged 34 in November 2023.
Her death comes after she was hospitalised for complications from a blood disorder.
The influencer was suffering from sickle-cell anaemia.
Jeane was laid to rest in Salvador on November 16, one day after her death.
Her family said in a statement: “May your path be illuminated, just as your presence among us was.”
Jacira Passos, Jeane’s mum, wrote on social media: “Thank you, Lord, for the daughter you gave me. Today, she is resting in your arms.”
Jeane used to live in Salvador, Brazil, where sickle-cell anaemia sufferers are more than in any other Brazilian municipality, according to a Health Ministry survey.
It is an inherited illness where the red blood cells in the body become curved and cause severe health problems – including fever, abdominal pain, jaundice, and leg ulcers.
The illness more commonly affects black people, who make up about half of Salvador’s population.
The only cure on the market involves a bone marrow transplant, but low chances of finding a suitable donor, and the surgical risks involved rule it out for the patients.
