Jackie Collins death shocks her fans: Cause of death was breast cancer
Jackie Collins author and novelist is no more. She reportedly died of breast cancer. Collins was 77 and died after enduring the illness for a long time.
Reports about her suffering from the cancer first surfaced some seven years ago. Since then she suffered badly from the disease that takes hundreds of thousands of lives almost every year.
While announcing the unfortunate death of the best-selling author his family released a statement saying, â€œIt is with tremendous sadness that we announce the death of our beautiful, dynamic and one of a kind mother, Jackie Collins, who died of breast cancer todayâ€.
The statement further said, â€œShe lived a wonderfully full life and was adored by her family, friends and the millions of readers who she has been entertaining for over 4 decades. She was a true inspiration, a trail blazer for women in fiction and a creative force. She will live on through her characters but we already miss her beyond words.”
The author was actually diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer seven years ago, but she told about the news only to her three daughters. While talking about her disease the renowned novelist said, â€œI did it my way, as Frank Sinatra would say. I’ve written five books since the diagnosis, I’ve lived my life, I’ve travelled all over the world, I have not turned down book tours and no one has ever known until now when I feel as though I should come out with itâ€¦Now I want to save other people’s lives.â€ She is survived by her three daughters, Tracy, 54, Tiffany, 48, and Rory, 46.
