Claire was such an inspiration. The real Hazel Grace Lancaster from the fault in our stars. I always believed she should have played the role. Yet, the role she played in my life is much greater. She made me realise how a disease does not define you unless you let it. From now on, I will keep spreading this message through my career as a doctor. We can make a difference and live a life we can be proud of. Claire, you will be missed, but this empty space you left is going to be filled with the...

Love, hope, prayers and healing during the difficult time her family faces. I was a huge fan of this phenomenal young woman, and I know wherever Claire finds herself now, she is at peace and free of pain.

God Bless.

She really inspired me. My heart is broken reading this. As a kid who has been in the hospital all my life she really inspired me to be more than that and to really make something of my life. That I can do something with my life. I'm so sorry for your loss. May her legacy live on forever.

I've been following Claire on her journey for many many years. I kept checking for updates on YouTube and finally decided to Google her when there were none. My heart sank when I read that she had passed. She was a beautiful soul and will be missed. My condolences to her family and friends.

I speak for many when I say that people like Claire make the world a better place. As a youth with major health complications, I have a special place in my heart for ones who use their suffering to encourage and inspire rather than give up on themselves and others. My deep respect and sympathy goes out to her and her family.

I live in chronic pain and listening to Claire speak wisdom about life brought me to a place of peace that I had never been before and I remain here. She changed me... and I am forever grateful. Her light was so bright it still shines, even in the hearts of complete strangers. Her positive impact on us and this world is immeasurable. Thank you, Claire. Thank you, Claire's family. I am so sorry for your loss.
