Katie May, known to her online fans as ‘MsKatieMay’, suffered a “catastrophic” blockage to an artery in her neck, according to reports. The mother of seven-year-old daughter Mia had sought medical treatment for neck pain in the days before her death, her family were quoted as saying.
Her most recent uypdate posted earlier this week read: “Hope everyone is having a great Monday! It's very windy here today in LA.“ It was accompanied by a photograph of her wearing a swimsuit and sunglasses.
Within hours of Ms May’s death a GoFundMe campaign was launched to raise money for her young daughter. Nearly $10,000 has already been raised - with a target of $100,000 being set.
