Her death comes after being diagnosed with cancer in 2021. She once shared his journey and explained that it is very important for someone like her, as a celebrity, to speak on it to create awareness.
“I’m a firm believer that representation in media matters, and cancer treatment is no different. Cancer can affect anyone – I’m living proof of that. I figure that if someone out there with cancer sees me going through it, it may give them a shred of strength too. While there are no guarantees in life, my outcome is very good and I have every shot of living a long, healthy life post-treatment. Chemo will be my toughest journey yet, but it will make me stronger than I’ve ever been,” she shared.

“After two and a half years of cancer treatment, and a lifetime of jet-setting around the world, voicing a plethora of cartoon animals, making music, and knowing more about life than most people ever will, she is off on her next adventure,” the statement read.
