This is just so incredibly sad.

Deborah Raffin, who got her start as an actress in the mid-'70s in movies like Once Is Not Enough and 40 Carats, but is probably better known now as Aunt Julie on 7th Heaven, passed away last Wednesday at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in El Lay after suffering from leukemia for over a year.

The 59-year-old also launched an audiobook business with her ex-husband Michael Viner, and was also featured in episodes of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, ER, and The Secret Life of the American Teenager.

We can't even begin to process how difficult it must be to lose someone that young to such an awful disease.

Our thoughts go to her friends, family, and loved ones during this impossibly devastating time.

May she R.I.P.

    I lost my mom at age 48. It's never fair, and there is no possible reason. Cancer has no age descrimination…..horrific!!!
