Buffalo Bills linebacker Tony Steward confirmed the death of his 26-year-old fiancée Brittany Burns, who was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer less than two months ago.

Steward expressed his love for the late beauty in a post on Instagram, saying Burns had the biggest heart he’d ever seen.

He continued:

“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.”

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.”
