Daisy Lewellyn has passed away from cancer at age 36. The author, editor and star of Blood, Sweat & Heels will be missed by her family, friends and fans, who refer to her as a light on and off screen. Before her death, Lewellyn opened up about her diagnosis on Blood, Sweat & Heels.
Lewellyn told Essence Live, “Season 1 [of Blood, Sweat & Heels] was about… my fabulous life. Season 2, I was diagnosed with Stage 3 bile duct cancer. Super rare, no one’s really heard of it. But I decided, if I’m on a reality show showing my life, life isn’t always roses… I was going through the journey as we were taping.”
Fans and friends, both celebrities and lives that she touched through her work, are coming out and sharing their appreciation for Lewellyn.
Andy Cohen, her former producer at Bravo, shared, “I am just heartbroken about Daisy Lewellyn. What a wonderful spirit, force of life, & a great person. She lit up every room. Sad day.”
