Donna Summer passed away on Thursday after a 10-month battle with lung cancer, but her family wants the world to know that the Queen of Disco was NOT a smoker!
Her family released a statement that says her cancer "was not related to smoking." In fact, she took very good care of herself.
A source who worked with Summer in 2008 has said:
"She was healthy, she was taking care of herself. She was healthy and energetic when I worked with her."
We probably won't learn too many other details surrounding her cancer and treatment because her family's statement continues:
"Ms. Summer was a non-smoker. Obviously, numerous factors can be attributed to the cause of cancer in general, but any details regarding the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of Ms. Summer's case remain between her family and team of doctors."
Rightfully so! We don't need anymore information because it won't bring her back. All we want to do is remember and honor her legacy!
The world will miss you, Donna! Rest in peace.
