    That is so sad. I lost my mother to breast cancer four weeks ago today... so this is just reinforcing fresh wounds.

    Even in her last days she was so full of life--you never would have been able to tell she was sick.

    Cancer is a terrible thing, and it's frustrating that with today's technology we still can't cure it.

    I had to look her up and read the article as I could not remember her at all.
    Very sad. Much too young.
    Especially sad as she detected lumps but, being without insurance, did nothing about it.

    Survivor: Palau Contestant Jennifer Lyon Dies at 37

    Jennifer Lyon, who placed fourth on Survivor: Palau in 2005, died at her home in Oregon Tuesday night, PEOPLE has confirmed. She was 37.

    The reality TV star was first diagnosed with stage-three breast cancer a few months after she wrapped Survivor, and opted for a modified, radical bilateral mastectomy, followed by courses of chemotherapy and tamoxifen, a drug used to prevent recurrence.

    "In the summer of 2004, I felt something in my right breast that didn't feel normal," Lyon told PEOPLE in October 2005. "I thought it was probably scar tissue related to my breast implants. So I let it go – for a long time."

    Being on the CBS competition boosted her spirits and provided an inner strength to battle her disease. "Survivor taught me there's an end in sight," she told PEOPLE. "As hard as it is, it will be over, and you have to appreciate every day."

    Her Survivor castmates remember her as kind and courageous. "She is the model of grace, and has been so brave," fellow contestant Ian Rosenberger told PEOPLE at the Survivor 10th anniversary party on Jan. 9.

    Despite her illness, Lyons hosted many fundraisers for breast cancer research. Most recently, she opened a Christmas tree lot with proceeds designated to her cause.

    Not to get political, but this is exactly why we need health care reform in this country. I'm NOT saying the current plan is perfect or even good... but at least we've gotten people talking about it.

    Broadway: I'm sincerely sorry for your loss. Consider yourself hugged by a really nice stranger from Cirie's (new) hometown.

    I'm so sorry about your Mom, Broadway. I lost my Dad to Pancreatic Cancer just over 3 years ago, and I remember how lost I felt in those first few weeks.

    So sad to hear such a young woman could die of this disease. I did read on, I believe, people.com that she felt something in her breast but let it go for a long time before having it checked out because she thought it might be scarring from a breast implant. I guess the lesson here is to check everything out, no matter how trivial it seems. However, having said that, it's easy to do that here in Canada, but if she did indeed have no insurance then it's truly very sad, if that's why she didn't get it checked.
