A woman in the US has died in from the coronavirus after previously bragging about being unvaccinated.
According to The Mirror, Kristen Lowery would regularly update her followers on Facebook with anti-vaxx messages and urge people to go against the health advice during the pandemic.
In one post, she seemed proud to be 'unmasked, unmuzzled, unvaccinated, unafraid' and claimed to be giving 'a voice to the vaccine injured'.
The 40-year-old mum said she was a 'free thinker' and told people to 'question everything'.
However, it seems like her unwillingness to listen to the health advice has cost her her life.
Her sister posted on Facebook that Kristen was recently in hospital.
"My sister, Kristen, is in the hospital fighting for her life against Covid and pneumonia," she wrote. "My sister has a long life left. We need you here, sissy. Your kids love and miss you so much. Please don't give up.
"I do not care about your opinion on vaccinated or not [sic]. This is not political."
A GoFundMe set up to help her family and pay for her funeral costs has revealed Lowery died 'suddenly'.
A statement issued on the fundraising page described Kristen as a 'beautiful and amazing woman but more than that she was a phenomenal mother who always, ALWAYS put her children first'.
It added: "She lived for her children (Tayden, McKenna, Ella, and Ryenn) and loved being their mother more than anything in her life.
"She was full of life and loved her friends and family fiercely. She was the kind of person that even if she didn't have anything she would give the shirt off of her back to anyone in need.
"She was everything that was good and kind. Her passing leaves a big hole in many of our lives and she will never be forgotten but will be greatly missed."
Her family decided to turn Kristen's Facebook private after her death as her page ended up being targeted by people asking why she didn't get vaccinated.
Kristen didn't suggest she had a medical exemption or other reason why she refused to get the jab.
Unvaccinated people make up nearly the entire portion of people who are dying from coronavirus in the US.
The Delta variant is wreaking havoc across some areas and only 0.1 per cent of deaths belong to Americans who received the jab, according to The New York Times.
Kristen Lowery's family has started a GoFundMe to help them pay for her funeral costs.
