TikTok star Francesco LoPresti has passed away from stage four cancer at the young age of 24. LoPresti was best known for sharing prank videos on TikTok with his girlfriend Kaitlin Reagan .
LoPresti was diagnosed with stage 3B testicular cancer at 17, which metastasized into multiple tumors surrounding his lymph nodes, neck, liver, spinal cord, and right hip.
Last week on TikTok, Reagan wrote, “I love you guys, and I ask you keep him in your prayers. We are in a hospice stage. Please stand with us, and pray. Thank you so much.”
Reagan and LoPresti had been together since they were 15 years old.
On March 15th, one week prior to his passing and as he entered the “hospice stage,” a GoFundMe was created to support the family, saying, “His cancer has taken a tragic turn, resulting in astronomical and overwhelming medical bills.”
Currently, the GoFundMe has raised $47,000 of its $70,000 goal.
LoPresti’s death was announced by Reagan’s aunt, Adriana, on Instagram.
“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform everyone that my niece @kaitlin_reagan boyfriend @cescolopresti, who was just like a nephew to me lost his battle with cancer.”
Kaitlin has posted many updates throughout her boyfriend’s battle. Recently she shared a very touching video to TikTok and Instagram. Although, since his death, she has not spoken publicly.
