Suzanne Somers’ Death

Suzanne Somers has actually had a fifty-year-long battle with cancer. She would have turned 77 years old tomorrow but died right before her birthday.

Her publicist R. Couri Hay, gave a statement saying, “Suzanne Somers passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of October 15th. She survived an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years. Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband Alan, her son Bruce, and her immediate family.” It was revealed about three months ago that her breast cancer had returned once again.

Memorial Plans

There will be a memorial this month, but there will be a private burial sometime this week with the family. They will spend her birthday celebrating her.

She lived in an all-green home in Palm Springs and a friend shared that she died with her husband by her side. They were married for 46 years before her death.

Somers’ Broke Silence On Cancer

Back in July, she spoke to ET Online and broke her silence on her cancer. Here is what she had to say at the time:

“I have been living with cancer since my 20’s. And every time that little f***** pops up, I continue to bat it back. I do my best not to let this insidious disease control me. It’s a recurrence of my breast cancer. Like any cancer patient, when you get that’s dreaded, ‘It’s back’ you get a pit in your stomach. Then I put on my battle gear and go to war. This is familiar battleground for me and I’m very tough.”

My cancer is a disease that affected my whole family and once it hit me in my 20’s, Alan and I got even closer and every moment of every day was precious. We have not spent even one day apart in over 42 years. That’s the big upside of my cancer. My son refers to our relationship as functionally co-dependent. And my incredible family has been unbelievably supportive every step of the way.”

Are you shocked by the death of Suzanne Somers? A lot of fans didn’t even realize she was sick. Our condolences are with her family at this time.
