Two-year-old Eliza died on Father's Day following a long battle with the aggressive cancer.
Social media influencer Kate Hudson shared devastating news on Monday: Her 2-year-old daughter Eliza-a social media star in her own right-died on Father's Day.

Hudson shared the news in an emotional Instagram post. Hudson began the announcement with a quote: "When the links of life are broken and a child has to part, there is nothing that will ever heal a parent's broken heart."
