"America's Next Top Model" alum Jael Strauss has passed away after battling stage 4 breast cancer.

In return for her kindness, pals at the recovery center organized the "F-k Cancer-Love Like Jael" fundraiser, where people who donated $20-$50 could receive free "F-k Cancer" or "Jael Love" tattoos, which about 20 people received.

A GoFundMe page was created to help assist Strauss with the heavy financial burden of her diagnosis, which described her condition as being aggressive Stage IV Rapidly Progressive Metastatic Inflammatory Breast Cancer. She had celebrated five years of sobriety by the time she was diagnosed with incurable Stage IV breast cancer.

After receiving treatment for her addiction and getting clean, the model said she was "the happiest I've ever been in my entire life". "I wish I could of seen her once more. I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013" ― a reference to her overcoming substance abuse that year.

According to her GoFundMe page, in lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to help pay for funeral arrangements and outstanding medical expenses.

Hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Strauss competed in "America's Next Top Model" Season 8, which aired on The CW from February 28, 2007 to May 16, 2007.

"I'm glad we got the opportunity to know of her through ANTM!" one Twitter user wrote. "Sobriety makes you weird not normal and I'd be dead if it weren't for all the love and forgiveness I've been showered with by my friends and my family".
