American professional pool player, Jeanette Lee has been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
As per media reports doctor diagnosed Lee, also known as “The Black Widow,” of having stage four ovarian cancer, which has spread into her lymph nodes.
“At this stage, her doctors say she has a few months to a year left to live.
“In typical Black Widow fashion, she has vowed to fight the progress of her disease as fiercely as possible with both chemotherapy, which has already begun, and a succession of upcoming surgeries.
“Those of us who are closest to her know that the last ten years or so has not been kind to Jeanette.
“The scoliosis that has plagued Jeanette since childhood has continued to progress. In fact, it has been suggested that the scoliosis masked the pain from the cancer in part allowing it to progress undetected for so long. The increasing effects of scoliosis has not allowed her to play at the highest level for years now and has limited her ability to make a living,” according to a GoFundMe page created by her family and friends.
Also, on the GoFundMe site, It was revealed that Lee has three kids – Cheyenne (16), Chloe (11) and Savannah (10) – and has been a “single mother for the last several years.”
