May 30 (UPI) -- Social media star Ashley Stock announced on Instagram that her 3-year-old daughter Stevie has died of brain cancer.

"Stevie Lynn Stock. 3 years old. Seed Planter. Miracle Maker. Light Giver. Heart Healer. Blue eyed, dimpled smile, curly haired forever baby girl. Adored little sister, daughter and friend. At 1:05pm on May 27th, Stevie took her final breath in our arms," Stock wrote in a post on Friday.

"There have been many miracles and countless God moments that I'll put into words when my heart has strength," she added. "For now, I'm overwhelmed with relief that she's at peace but I'm also feeling crushed by a pain so intense i can't put it into words."

The post included a photo of Stock's tiny hand with polished fingernails holding a star, as well as a video of the child playing with a puppy.

E! News said doctors at Children's Hospital Los Angeles diagnosed Stevie with DIPG, a rare and fast-growing tumor with a zero percent survival rate, about a month ago.

Stock and her husband Ben are also parents to sons Wesley, 10, and Sawyer, 7.

Stevie Lynn Stock 3 years old. Seed Planter. Miracle Maker. Light Giver. Heart Healer. Blue eyed, dimpled smile, curly haired forever baby girl. Adored little sister, daughter and friend. At 1:05pm on May 27th, Stevie took her final breath in our arms. There have been many miracles and countless God moments that I'll put into words when my heart has strength. For now, I'm overwhelmed with relief that she's at peace but I'm also feeling crushed by a pain so intense i can't put it into words. I let it out a bit at a time, like when you gently twist the lid off a liter soda bottle...releasing the built up pressure a little at a time to keep it from exploding all over the place. I guess it's like that. I'm twisting the lid on my grief gently. Because if i release it all at once, i don't see how i could possibly survive. Gentleness has been my most effective approach on grief these last months, gentleness for myself and for all the beloved mourners by my side. We have complete faith in there being a greater purpose of this tragedy (and it's already unfolding through your stories of renewed hope), but unfortunately, faith is not a "get out of pain free" card, and that's okay. I don't know how to do this, so for now we'll continue one day at a time held by the grace of God, the support of loved ones and the prayers of strangers who have become friends. #stevielynnstock #dipg #starsforstevie
