“We are eternally thankful for the outpouring of love that Catherine and our family have received over the past few months. Cat saw her music go places she never expected and rests in peace of knowing that she will continue to provide for her son through her music. This would have not been possible without all of you.

Thank you.

The Instagram post has been flooded with comments and tributes to Cat. One fan said “She looks so angelic in this photo. I have never cried for someone that I don’t know like I have cried for Cat. She definitely left her mark on this Earth. And for those that continue to fight this terrible disease like myself. Let’s continue to fight to live another day for Cat. May you rest in heavenly peace.”

Cat Janice who was born in Washington DC, entered hospice care on the 10 January. Her song ‘Dance You Outta My Head’ which was inspired by her son, went viral on TikTok  after she released it. People magazine reported that “She transferred all her songs to her son’s name, so all proceeds would go to Loren. When she released the song she said that “Everyone knows that I’ve been battling cancer for a while and I wanted to put this song out, and just go stream it. I hope you like it. I don’t know if I’m going to be around even when the song comes out, so let’s just put it out. And I did,”
