On tonight’s premiere of the new season of Blood, Sweat, and Heels on Bravo Daisy Lewellyn reveals to her castmates that she has stage 3 cancer. The cancer was discovered after she got herself checked out when her makeup artists thought something was a little off.
“I was doing press for season one and my makeup artists noticed that my eyes had this crazy green,” Daisy told OK! Magazine. “I assumed I was just tired – but it turned out I had a tumor in my bile duct. It’s super rare.”
“I’d thought the next “Big C” in my life would be my career, but I was never expecting cancer,” said Daisy. She completed treatment while filming for this season, which included surgery to remove the tumor, . chemotherapy, and radiation
Daisy didn’t let her health struggle affect her attitude. “I have cancer – cancer doesn’t have me. Every day comes with its challenges, but that doesn’t stop me from celebrating what I have in my life,” she said. “I wanted to turn this tragedy into triumph by sharing my story in hopes that even one person could feel inspired.”
