Former Miss World contestant Sherika De Armas, who represented Uruguay in 2015, has tragically passed away at the age of 26 due to cervical cancer.

She had been bravely battling the disease with chemotherapy and radiotherapy for two years.

Her passing has deeply saddened her friends, family, and fans, with heartfelt tributes pouring in on social media.

Her brother, Mayk’ De Armas, paid a moving tribute, and reigning Miss Uruguay, Carla Romero, expressed her grief.

Sherika had participated in the 2015 Miss World competition at the age of 18, where she shared her dreams of becoming a model.

She was passionate about modeling and fashion.

Besides her modeling career, she also operated the Shey De Armas Beauty Studio, where she sold personal care, makeup, and hair products.

Cervical cancer, a devastating disease, originates from abnormal cell growth in the cervix.

It is more common in individuals over the age of 30 but can be preventable and curable through regular screening and the HPV vaccine if diagnosed early, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
