"I am 19 and as statistics go, the chances of having breast cancer at this age are one in a million! (Literally, look it up on Google) I am so special - but we knew this!
"In these slides I have shared information on what my past 4 days have looked like, why I have decided to share this on social media, information on my cancer, a note not to be scared, and a message to my family and friends. Ps. I'm horrible at spelling so I am acknowledging in advance of any typos."
The star then shared a series of images of handwritten notes explaining her journey so far, before assuring her fans and followers that they need not be scared by her situation. "I won't get super specific because I don't want people Googling and scaring themselves (I also don't have all the answers yet)" she wrote in one note.
