It is with heavy hearts that we report, ‘Blood Sweat & Heels’ star and published author Daisy Lewellyn, 36, lost her battle to cancer, Essence confirms.
Daisy was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer last year. She broke the news to her friend and co-star Mica Hughes in this tearful clip.
Daisy opened up about her fight with the deadly disease in an interview with OK! Magazine.
“I was doing press for season one and my makeup artists noticed that my eyes had this crazy green,” she said. “I assumed I was just tired – but it turned out I had a tumor in my bile duct. It’s super rare.”
Daisy is known for her larger-than-life personality, beaming smile and effortless/chic style. She remained optimistic while fighting the disease, saying,
“I have cancer – cancer doesn’t have me. Every day comes with its challenges, but that doesn’t stop me from celebrating what I have in my life.”
We are heartbroken over this loss. Tomorrow is not promised. Our prayers are with Daisy’s family and friends.
