Valorant content creator, Alana Tow, was a positive force in the community.

They added, "throughout her life, these allergies caused her to face difficulties: being sent to the hospital during overnight camp, being unable to eat when going out for food, carrying around an EpiPen in her backpack, and having to go to the ER due to the slightest bit of egg on her plate.”

Despite these allergies, she remained a confident and strong individual who always had a smile. XSET Head of Social Media, Nate Schanker, stated that Alana was “one of the most real, down-to-earth, and kindest” people they’ve ever met “through gaming.”

Other personalities like the popular streamer Kyedae Shymko, who Alana adored for the longest time, even paid her respects and posted her condolences for the extremely saddening passing of the content creator. 

As Alana’s family, friends, and followers slowly adapt and learn to live without her presence, there’s no doubt it will take some time.

Feel free to support Alana’s organization, AllergyKidz, by donating money or sharing the fundraiser to spread awareness about allergies and help those in need. Rest in peace, Alana.
