Here's an inspiring story that's sure to warm your heart this Friday afternoon: Meet Talia Joy Castellano, a 13-year-old beauty vlogger and terminal cancer patient, who in just the past year alone not only landed a contract with CoverGirl, she's also launching a clothing line. (Seriously, what did you do when you were 13?)

Talia was first diagnosed with Stage 4 neuroblastoma in 2007, and eventually, turned to makeup to help boost her confidence. To this day, her YouTube tutorials, including the many she's now performed for the iconic beauty brand, have attracted more than 39 million views!

Earlier this month, Talia met Los Angeles-based designer, Urbana Chappa—a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed with the disease when she was just 19—and knew instantly that she wanted to collaborate on a collection.

"Even though she was sick in the hospital, we made the best of our time," Chappa told the Daily Mail. "She's so full of life that it's hard for me to imagine that she has cancer. We talked, sketched, worked on her line. My heart hurts to know that she has to go through this and that. She had so much she wants to do and accomplish. I wanted nothing more to keep her legacy alive."

All of the proceeds from her clothing line will go directly toward her sky-high medical bills. Read more about her story, here, and in the meantime, check out a few of her amazing YouTube tutorials, below.
