"Hi all! Sorry 4 time away," she wrote on Instagram in March 2021. "I can't believe my last 3 months. But, it makes sense now. I became very ill thinking I had covid in Jan and Feb. well things came to a head. I ended up in a hospital diagnosed with [leukemia]."

"I want everyone to know I'm doing incredibly well and fighting my way thru chemo," she continued. "I will update with a better pic of myself, and talk about staying positive thru the worst of times. take care of yourself all! I'll be back better, stronger, and wiser!"

Aycox's last Instagram update was posted in March of this year. "#alwayskeepfighting STOP! DO NOT attempt to sing 80's music after taking high doses of chemo will cause memory loss," she captioned a video of herself. "Literally got not 1 lyric correct #cancersucks #chemosucks #aml #cityofhope #highdosechemo #luekemia #chemosideeffects #chemofunny #chemowarrior #cancerwarrior."
