Mexico’s top model OnlyFans ends up paying for 17-year-old boy’s chemotherapy after her liposuction contest takes a dramatic turn
- Mexican model Karela Ruiz was moved by a mother’s plea to help cover the cost of her 17-year-old son’s remaining chemotherapy treatments.
- Ruiz posted on TikTok on May 18 that she was giving liposuction to one of her fans to celebrate reaching 3 million followers on Instagram.
- The woman expressed that she did not want the procedure and instead asked Ruiz to help pay for Sebastián Herrera’s treatment for Ewing’s sarcoma.
- Ruiz met with Herrera and his mother a week after the post to pay for his cancer treatment and also gave him two video game consoles.
- Ruiz is considered one of the top 5 earning OnlyFans in Mexico, earning around $36,000 per month since joining the platform two years ago.
To celebrate reaching 3 million followers on her Instagram account, Mexican OnlyFans top model Karely Ruiz decided to give away free liposuction to one of her social media fans on May 18.
What happened next went viral in a way she probably never expected.
“Since I’ve already reached 3 million followers on Instagram and have already been verified, I’m giving away lipo to all my dear, beautiful girls to make you look really hot,” Ruiz said on TikTok. “I’ll leave it here, comment if you haven’t (already) done so.”
However, the 21-year-old influencer was moved by one of her followers on her TikTok account who, instead of improving her own physical appearance, was more interested in helping her son Sebastián Herrera, who is battling Ewing’s sarcoma.
“Karely I don’t want (a) lipo, I want you to give me chemotherapy for my son Sebas, he is 17 years old and I am taking him to (Monterrey) for treatment, we are from Torreón,” Sebastián’s mother wrote.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Ewing’s sarcoma is “a rare type of cancer that occurs in the bones or in the soft tissues around the bones,” and although a person can be diagnosed at any age, it is more common in children and adolescents.

The woman caught Ruiz’s attention and returned to the model’s TikTok account the following day, writing: ‘It’s an opportunity for Sebastián, he wants to live.’
Touched by the comment, Ruiz responded, “And we’ll give it to him.”
On May 26, she visited Herrera and his mother to cover the remaining four treatments, which cost nearly $19,000.
She took him to a local mall where she treated him to food and gave him a Nintendo Switch and a PlayStation 5 to cheer him up.
“Now we are more in touch with her and everything and she is taking care of Sebastián,” Herrera’s mother said on her TikTok account. “Well, I want to thank her for all the help and support she gives Sebas and we’re happy for her.

Data from the National Center for Child and Adolescent Health shows that childhood cancer is the second leading cause of death and the leading cause of illness in children between the ages of five and 14 in the country.
Up to 7,000 children under the age of 18 are diagnosed with cancer each year in Mexico. At least 10 percent will require a bone marrow transplant, but only 30 percent of those have a family member who is compatible, leaving the rest to hope that a donor is willing to help.
“If I’m endorsing, it’s not to get people, believe me, it doesn’t matter,” Ruiz commented on one of her social media platforms. “I do it from the heart. So many things I achieve in a very short time, I think I should be grateful.
Ruiz, whose Instagram account now has 4.8 million followers, is one of OnlyFans top 5 money earners in Mexico.
She joined the platform two years ago and earns at least $36,000 a month.
