Renowned actress Suzanne Somers has tragically passed away at the age of 76 after a prolonged battle with cancer. Her representative confirmed her peaceful passing, revealing that she died at her home on October 15th, marking the day before her 77th birthday. Her family, who had initially planned to celebrate her birthday, will now celebrate her extraordinary life and express their gratitude to her millions of devoted fans and followers. A private family burial is set to take place this week, with a memorial service to be held next month.

Sources close to the beloved actress disclosed that Suzanne had been undergoing treatment for breast cancer outside of her home state in the Midwest. Regrettably, the treatment did not yield the desired results, leading to her return home. Suzanne Somers’ journey with cancer spanned over two decades. She first faced a diagnosis of melanoma in 2000 and subsequently battled breast cancer. Although she overcame breast cancer multiple times over the years, it resurfaced in the summer of this year, prompting her to share her experience with the world.

In an earlier statement, she candidly spoke about her ongoing battle, stating, “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”.

While Suzanne Somers is most celebrated for her iconic portrayal of Chrissy Snow in the renowned ABC sitcom “Three’s Company,” her illustrious career transcends her memorable performance on the series. Her work in the entertainment industry spanned decades and encompassed various roles in both television and film. She is recognized for her contributions to “Starsky and Hutch,” “Hollywood Wives,” “She’s the Sheriff,” “Step by Step,” and numerous guest appearances on popular TV series.

In the realm of cinema, her most notable accomplishment came with her role in “American Graffiti.” Although this stands as her most prominent film role, Suzanne graced the big screen in several other productions, including “Ants!,” “Yesterday’s Hero,” “Nothing Personal,” “Serial Mom,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Say It Isn’t So,” and more. Her acting career saw its culmination around 2001, coinciding with the emergence of her health challenges.

Suzanne Somers’ untimely passing transpired just a day before her 77th birthday. She leaves behind her son, Bruce Jr., and a legacy of memorable contributions to the world of entertainment.
