Continuing, "Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences."

Charlotte’s mother and Brosnan’s first wife, Cassandra Harris, succumbed to ovarian cancer in 1991. Charlotte and her brother, Christopher, were Cassandra’s children from another marriage; Brosnan adopted both of them after their father died in 1986. The couple had one son together, Sean, born in 1983. Brosnan is currently married to Keely Shaye and has two children with her.

Our sincerest condolences to Charlotte’s family and friends.
