Our prayers go out to Buffalo Bills linebacker Tony Steward, who revealed the death of his 26-year-old fiancée Brittany Burns.

According to reports, Brittany was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer less than two months ago (Dec. 9), but remained hopeful as she fought for her life. Tony expressed his love for the late beauty in a beautiful post on Instagram, saying Brittany had the biggest heart he’d ever seen.

Brittany Ann Steward! Wow BEAUTIFUL is the only way I know you. You have the biggest heart I have ever seen in my entire life and I promise you that it will live on in me, our family and every single soul you have touched. You are the strongest and most loving soul to step foot in this world. You have been my rock, my motivation, my heart, my soulmate, my everything since the day I laid eyes on you. Every single day of your life you have been a fighter and I know this because of the unbelievable family you brought me into. We will all honor everything you stand for in life. I will continue to be the person that you always bring out in me. Believe me when I say that I deeply love you with every ounce of everything in me. Love always, Your Fiancé #fightinglikeagirl #fightlikebritt

The Buffalo Bills also offered their condolences.

PEOPLE reports that the happy couple got engaged following her diagnosis. They also started a fundraiser, Britt and Tony’s Fight Like A Girl Campaign, so that they could help “other women who are battling ovarian cancer.”
