‘Blood, Sweat and Heels’ Star Daisy Lewellyn Passes At 36 From Rare Cancer
Sad news of a bright light dimmed far too soon. E! News confirms that Daisy Lewellyn, star of Bravo’s “Blood Sweat and Heels” has passed away after her battle with a rare liver cancer. The television personality, style maven and author was 36.
In an episode of Essence Live, Lewellyn spoke about living in the spotlight following her February 2015 diagnosis:
“Season 1, everyone who didn’t know me got to see my life, and the champagne, the fabulous heels, I’m doing makeovers and my book. In Season 2 was a total, total curveball. I was diagnosed with Stage III bile duct cancer. Super rare; no one’s really heard about it. I mean, of course, my doctors know. But I decided, You know what? If I’m on a reality show showing my life, life isn’t always roses, you know? So I wanted to show this part, which was interesting for me because I was going through the journey as we were taping.”
The 2015 finale showed Lewellyn celebrating the end of her radiation treatments.
