Through Instagram, the Chilean-born driver mourned the death of his beloved Danielita, who debuted on the screens of his program at the age of nine.
“There are lives that leave deep traces. “Danielita” Núñez, from our Children’s Clan, taught us the value of fighting to live with a smile. Last night her heart stopped beating. Our condolences to your family. Rest in peace Danielita!“Wrote the driver.
Danielita suffered from cancer at a very young age, whose treatment left her very weak. The chemotherapy treatment weakened her heart muscle and this led to her needing a heart transplant, according to the People magazine portal.
It is also known that throughout her life Daniela faced four strokes, she also lost her sight and even speech and stopped walking.
