Mexican actress Edith Gonzalez has died after a 3-year battle with cancer at the age of 54. Her death is coming three years after she announced that doctors diagnosed her with ovarian cancer.

Battle with cancer

Back in August 2016, the actress revealed she was diagnosed with cancer. The telenovela star had shared a photo of herself in the hospital saying doctors had found “cancerous tissues” in her abdomen.

In an emotional video, she shared an important health update with her fans. The Mexican actress revealed that her cancer was in remission. In an interview with Hola! Magazine, the mother-of-one said:

I am alive, I am here, I want to give you all the love my heart feels. “I am not a warrior, I am a lover of life.

Tragic death

The news of Edith’s death was confirmed by Mexican journalist Mara Patricia Castañeda. In a telephone interview with Televisa morning show, Mara said the star passed away on June 13 at the Ángeles Interlomas hospital in Mexico City.

Edith suffered from stage four ovarian cancer. Though her cancer had entered remission in 2017, the disease unfortunately returned this year, according to CNN.

The actress had remained hopeful throughout her treatments. Information obtained from Entertainment Tonight reveals the actress had her ovaries, uterus and lymph nodes removed.
