Daisy Lewellyn, star of Bravo’s Blood, Sweat and Heels, has died after a battle with a rare form of cancer. She was 36.

The style expert and reality star revealed to Madame Noir last year that she was diagnosed with stage-three bile duct cancer, also known as cholangiocarcinoma — a rare cancer affecting the liver — at age 34.

“I realized that it was hard for my family and friends,” she told the publication then. “I’m not afraid to go to Heaven, but I would like to stay on Earth if I can.

“If it’s my time to go, then I can say that I had a great life.”

The star also spent time in various editor positions at Essence, InStyle and Glamour magazines, according to Essence.
