Another piece of my childhood is gone. Suzanne Somers, legendary actress and star of “Three’s Company,” has passed away after battling breast cancer.
Suzanne transitioned to her heavenly home on Sunday morning (October 15), a day before her 77th birthday.
Her publicist, R. Couri Hay, released the following statement:
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.
Her family was gathered to celebrate her 77th birthday on October 16th.
Instead, they will celebrate her extraordinary life, and want to thank her millions of fans and followers who loved her dearly.
A private family burial will take place this week, with a memorial to follow next month.
Suzanne Somers was first diagnosed with melanoma in 2000 and developed breast cancer shortly thereafter.
The actress battled breast cancer on and off for over two decades.
In July, she took to social media and offered an update on her health.
Since I have been taking time off from work, many of you have asked for more details about my health. As you know, I had breast cancer two decades ago, and every now and then it pops up again, and I continue to bat it down.
I have used the best alternative and conventional treatments to combat it. This is not new territory for me. I know how to put on my battle gear and I’m a fighter. Alan has been by my side every step of the way. I can’t even explain how much he has done for me.
If it’s even possible, we are even closer than ever. My incredible family has been so supportive, and have helped so much by keeping the business running so you can still have access to all the wonderful products.
Thank you for the continued love and support. It’s only about who you love and who loves you – and I love you! ✨💛✨
