It is so sad that this world has lost Lee's endearing smile. She was close to my daughters age and I am deeply saddened that her life was cut short by a disease that is so all consuming and misunderstood. I am sure that Max is deeply saddened as well as all her friends and family. God speed to all!

I can only hope that if I should be fortunate enough to make it to Heaven that I will have an opportunity to meet Lee and to let her know the positive influence she has had on so many people.

My heart is broken over this, but know that Lee is smiling down on all of us.

I never met Lee but did see a number of her adventurous van life videos and found her to be authentic, courageous and strong. She was living the dream that so many, myself included, aren’t courageous enough to live. My thoughts are with her family and friends now. I pray she is at peace as that is the only consolation to losing a bright soul too soon.

I am struggling to accept this reality... I never met Lee but I too used to watch Max&Lee on youtube. I too consider myself a nomad, a vegan, lover of animals, a furmama who travels with her dogs... Through her videos I could relate to her so much and she still inspired me. She looked like life itself, so full of energy and love for all things around her. I am so very sorry for your loss. And I am sorry for the rest of us too...

I believe she was exactly what an influencer should be, she always promoted the positive and what was right.. what was possible. Possible to achieve. She was an everyday girl like many of us but an everyday girl who taught us how life could be. And she was brilliant!

Yes, what a terrible loss. I hope she has found the peace she was looking for. Wishing all her loved ones peace as well. She will never be forgotten and will continue to do good through her legacy and her story, to us and to the next generations of nomads who will continue to be inspired by her. She will continue to gift people with the ability to dream. Priceless!

Beauty and brains all in the body of a nice person. I can't say that about too many people I've met. I hope the cliche, "Time is a great healer" is true for her family since I'm sure that would be Lee's wish.

To the friends and family of Lee. Like many, I didn't know Lee but occasionally watched her VL videos. She was a beautiful, and sweet soul. What a tragedy this is, and I cannot imagine your immense grief. When things like this happen, it doesn't make any sense and you struggle to get your mind around it, and yet-it happened. There are no real words to say in this situation, but I believe that souls continue on, so just hold in your heart that she is there, loving you, comforting you. I pray that her suffering is now lifted and she is being held in love. My thoughts will be with you and may you feel the love that is being sent your way.

This world which has increasingly become a hellish place, it's no place for an Angel. Beautiful Lee was one of those Angels, she refused to part take in this negative hell, so she tried to find Heaven on Earth to show us it was Possible, she chose to Smile through it All to keep Positivity alive, she tried so hard to Uplift the World for the Good of All. It was her Purpose in Life but somehow she felt she wasn't making a dent, and it became to heavy in her Heart. I want her to know that we All think she didn't make a dent, she made an Impact. Praying for God to finally give her, her Wings. My Deepest Condolences to Family and Friends, her light will always shine...

Lee I got to know you through Eamon and Bec and the Vanwives. Your energy for life , your smile and your inner and outer beauty just glowed. We have never met in person yet I have this ache in my heart for your loss. I only ask that we meet amongst the clouds one day as you travel the heavens and pick the perfect spots to view all the ones we love. You will be missed by your family, friends, loved one's and the van life community. RIP beautiful Lee.

I met you through YT videos as you shared van travels with Max and Occy; and I thank you for those hours. Soon after, in cameos with Eamon & Bec. In process, I learned to love you through your candor about feelings, friends, family, values, personal stories & struggles. Moments ago, Lee, I learned that I/we lost you tragically; and I am near speechless. I know there are details that I cannot know; and are largely private to you and family. In a word, I am sad yet resilient. I will carry your legacy in my corner of the World. - I am a public school teacher; and my antenna is up, seeking to understand the mental and emotional needs of students, faculty and staff. I want to be a force for good and understanding on Mental Health and related topics. - Steve, Utah
