Beloved Canadian Mike Sloan, who made his fight with cancer public on Twitter, has passed away.

Sloan had been suffering from Stage 4 Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer, initially being given only six months to live, outliving the diagnosis by four months.

Sloan was known for his clever observations, which included everything from his cat to Canadian politics.

The deeply personal tweets gave insight into what it was like to stare death in the face, and the perspective of someone who knows their days are numbered.

The London, Ontario native was followed by several Canadian personalities and political figures, including This Hour‘s Rick Mercer, Arlene Dickinson, Bill Morneau, and Michelle Rempel.

In a tweet, it was announced that Sloan passed peacefully at 1:25 pm EST via MAID (medically assisted in dying.) His last words were “Tell Chub (his cat) I love him.”
