Mexican telenovela star Edith Gonzalez dies 3 years after battling with ovarian cancer

Mexican telenovela star Edith Gonzalez is dead. She died on Thursday at the age of 54 three years after she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Her death was confirmed by the official Mexican news agency Notimex and the TV stations for which she worked, Televisa and TV Azteca.

The actress revealed in August 2016 that doctors discovered cancerous tissue in her abdomen. Her cancer entered remission in 2017 but returned sometime this year. She is survived by her husband, Lorenzo Lazo, and 14-year-old daughter, Constanza.

Best known for her role in the soap “Salomé,” Gonzalez continued to work up until her death, most recently as a judge on the Mexican reality show “This Is My Style.” After she was diagnosed with cancer in 2016, she constantly spoke about her treatments and the subsequent hair loss. She appeared on magazine covers, shared encouraging messages on social media and took speaking engagements to address cancer prevention.
