1; who competed in season 8 of the reality show – tell her she died in hospice Tuesday around 11 AM after taking a trip to the worse Monday night. We were told that she had been unconscious in a few days and her family finally stopped allowing visitors.
Jael decided to stop chemotherapy around Halloween and went to hospice on Thanksgiving and said to Facebook, “First night in hospice. Many things I never knew about life or death.” So many things. “
The model officially announced its cancer diagnosis in October earlier this year with a heart attack Facebook post, revealing that she had been diagnosed with “unbearable” stage 4 breast cancer.
By that time Jael wrote to his followers … “I would write a long thing but some of you deserve to know, on October 2, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in stage IV.”
She continued … “It has been aggressively spread throughout the body and is irreversible. With treatment, it can extend my life beyond the few months the doctor said I could do. I do not want to die. I need another of the wonders which I returned in 2013. “
Jael appeared on Dr. Phil in 2012 to deal with her addiction problems and celebrated 5 years of curiosity in August in August at IG. Her text read partly … “I know some things to be true: Miracles are real, recovery is possible for everyone no matter how far you think you are, we are never too broken to reassemble, service work feels better than the highest high, Sobriety does not make you weather ordinary and I would be dead if it was not for all love and forgiveness I have been showered by my friends and family. “
A GoFundMe started for Jael about a month ago, it has risen more than $ 18k of a $ 30k goal to fund her treatment. Jael’s family and friends say TMZ in a statement … “The only blessing was that we could show her how beloved she was before she passed. She took so much light for people.”
She was 34. RIP
