76-year-old Suzanne Somers had passed away on the last week, due to her breast cancer that she had fought for many years.
She was born in 1946, in San Bruno, California. She was expelled from her catholic high school, when her love letters were found. And then she transferred to Capuchino High School in San Bruno.
She was into acting, as she was a young woman in her high school. She was attended the plays, as she had took her part in production of a play in their school too, Guys and Dolls. It was a chance that in one of the plays, Walter Winchell, a celebrity name, was in among the spectators, and he had said to Somers, “You’re going some place, sister,”
Later on, she had a small part in American Grafitti, by George Lucas.
“This is a life-changing moment. Five seconds on film that will never be forgotten,” she said about her part in the movie.
“Everybody will always remember the mysterious blonde in the Thunderbird.”
“I am really proud of creating that dumb blonde cause she had a moral code. She was lovable,” she said about her character in Three’s Company.
“Here I was on the number one show, and I couldn’t even get an interview because I was considered trouble,”
Her breast cancer diagnosis came with her regular mammogram examination, in 2000.
“In the last year I have been battling and surviving breast cancer, and I was in that clinic, and it all has to do with my breast cancer,” she said to Larry King, in an interview that happened in 2001.
“But it just, you know – I have had such an honest relationship with the American public. I mean, I have written books on alcoholism, and blending families, and they have been with me on my ups and downs and sides. And this was just one of those things – I think the most shocking words I ever thought, I never thought, I would ever in my life hear someone say to me that you have breast cancer. And it was – it has been so…”
“I was in such shock. I’m very strong, and I was in such shock because I have always taken care of myself, and, I just thought, it would never happen to me, but I think that is what everybody thinks; it won’t happen to them. And, what’s interesting is what you learn about yourself when you are diagnosed with cancer. And cancer is not for sissies.”
“As I’m hearing the common course of treatment, I – I don’t want to lose my hair, but that was the least of my worries was losing my hair. But I – I don’t like what that drug does to people. What I have seen… Chemotherapy. I have seen people under treatment, there is, you know, I know it helps people. I know it helps.”
“It does [work for breast cancer], but I decided to find alternative things to do,”
“Because I have done so much work in my books about hormones, and that hormonal balance is why people gain or lose weight, and, it was my belief that a balanced environment of hormones prevents disease. And the first thing they said to me, we are taking of off all hormones. I said no, I’m going to continue taking my hormones, which is the first thing against the common course…”
“I didn’t want chemotherapy.” She continued.
“Even when I was Chrissy on Three’s Company, I had had cancer three times,” she said back in 2020.
“They call it severe hyperplasia in your uterus. I didn’t make a big deal about it,”
“As one of millions of cancer patients, we do our best not to let this insidious disease control us. I find bliss in each day,”
After her passing, her publicist, R. Couri Hay, had stated, “Suzanne Somers passed away peacefully at home in the early morning hours of October 15th. She survived an aggressive form of breast cancer for over 23 years,”
“Suzanne was surrounded by her loving husband Alan, her son Bruce, and her immediate family,”
“Her family was gathered to celebrate her 77th birthday on October 16th. Instead, they will celebrate her extraordinary life, and want to thank her millions of fans and followers who loved her dearly.”
When Hay spoke to the PEOPLE, he said, “There were all these plans, and she was always working and dreaming and had brought her family into the business, and the grandchildren and step-children were all part of the business,”
A source close to the family had a report that stated in DailyMail. As the source stated, her friends had begged her to change her treatment from alternative treatment to chemo.
“She has always rejected chemo, so it wasn’t even an option. Her friends and loved ones urged her to reconsider so many times during her cancer battles and at the end. She never regretted her decisions, and she was prepared to go. She believed that she lived a life beyond her wildest dreams and truly made a dent in the world.”
“The timing of her passing was a blessing because her loved ones were there. She was able to say her goodbyes to everyone she loved, which was so many people. She was accepting of her fate and went with dignity.”
