Ssamba died at a young age of 33.

The artist’s last Instagram post dated back September 2017. Her previous posts shows some optimism giving fans hope that she will slowly recover.
Although her previous blog posts show some sadness, the later posts show some optimism telling fans they have nothing to worry about. Last October 9. 2016, a fan opened up a GoFundMe page as a way to help the artist to recover. The artist have heard of this and politely requested the page owner (and its generous donors) to not continue with the said online campaign but has assured her fans that she’s was still receiving treatment in the hospital at that time and appreciated the never ending support.

  1. this saddens me, i was hoping her to recover from her illness. well, cancer sucks! Thank you Ssamba for bringing this manhwa of yours, It really inspired me and flutter me at the same way. It just sucks, I would never able to read Ff anymore. Hope you're at peace right now. Thank you very much <3

  2. I… I… I really love this manhwa. Thank you author and rest in peace. I’ll let my imagination finish the story.

  3. Damn… I really regret only finding this author’s work yesterday. I keep encountering Fluttering Feelings in other yuri mangas and webcomics, always stated as the inspiration for those works… The story was so amazingly well thought out, such normal, realistic pacing and natural romance. I really didn’t get the impression at all that the author actually had serious battles with cancer, and that just made me appreciate just how much of the story she was able to write. It’s very late, but rest in peace, author-san.
