In a post on her Instagram, where she was known as 'Ashten G', her family wrote: "It is with deep sorrow and an immensely heavy broken heart that we have to share the most shattering, unfortunate and unexpected passing of our beautiful beloved daughter and sister Christina Ashten Gourkani…."
Her followers rushed to offer their condolences, as one said: "Rip my beautiful friend. You’re beautiful soul will never be forgotten. We Love you angel."

Someone else said: "You were such a wonderful person, bringing smiles to everyone who encountered you. Everyone is going to miss you, rest well."
A fourth commented: "Rest in Paradise friend you were a great soul no matter what anyone felt about you."
In the bio on the GoFundMe page, Christina's family went into harrowing detail about the moment they found out that she was dying.
They wrote: "In the early morning hours at approximately 4:31am on 4/20/2023 our family received a tragic phone call from a family member who was frantically screaming and crying histaricaly on the other end of the line….Ashten is dying…Ashten is dying…
"A phone call that instantly shattered our world and will forever haunt our family for the rest of our lives.
"After arriving at the hospital shortly after the phone call our family continued living a nightmare as we were informed that her health and wellbeing had continued to decline in a downward spiral for the worse after suffering from a cardiac arrest.
"Her sudden and tragic passing is currently being investigated as a homicide related to medical procedure that took a turn for the worse. For the privacy of Christina Ashten, our family and the investigation no other details will be shared at this time."
In the rest of the heartfelt post, they described her as "such a caring and loving free spirit that always took the time to bring a smile to anyone's face she crossed paths with".
It continued: "I hope there is a place in heaven where you can feel the amount of our grief and the emptiness of our broken hearts, that we feel without you in our lives."
Just six days ago, Christina posted a snap in workout gear, as she wrote: "Happy Tuesday".
