How awful!

Maura Tierney lost her father on Sunday to cancer. The actress is currently battling cancer herself.

Joseph M. Tierney
was 68 years old when he passed. He was a politician in Boston and leaves behind his wife, three children, two brothers and three grandchildren.

Sad, sad.

Our thoughts are with Maura's family.

    I had no idea that Maura was a fellow Bostonian (way to ditch the accent) let alone that she was related to councilman Tierney, one of the good ones, RIP.
    Keep up the good fight against your cancer, Maura, condolences.

    She's a wonderful actress; loved her in "E.R." and "Insomnia" alongside Al Pacino. My condolences to her and her family, and good luck in the battle against breast cancer. We're pulling for you, dear.

    I do not care when fat and ugly people get cancer and die. But it is horrible when cute woman like Maura have problems like this. Get better because there are to many ugly undesirable people in this world.

    he died. He didn't "pass" (people pass gas when they're alive). He died. it's nothing to be ashamed of, every living thing does it eventually. He died. I'm sorry for her, and she's not "battling" cancer. Her cancer is gone. Medical personnel are treating her. she's not "battling." Did she quit smoking? hmmmm

    prayers go out to you and your family, Maura.
