By Carolyn Hiblen for MailOnline. Former American Idol contestant Joanne Borgella has passed away at the age of 32 following a year-long battle with cancer. The singer-songwriter's family took to her Facebook page on Saturday to share the tragic news with fans after the star succumbed to Endometrial cancer earlier that morning. Although our family is suffering with this great loss, we find comfort in the closeness Joanne shared with the Lord. We know her spirit still shines and will continue to live on in heaven. But it wasn't until she appeared on the seventh season of American Idol in that she really made a name for herself, making it into the top 12 girls and overall top 24 before being eliminated. After being diagnosed with cancer in October , she went on to share her story with her fans in video and blog posts, regularly updating her followers on her progress.
Ironically over the weekend some of the Townsquare Media staff and myself participated in the Ethel Precht 5K Cancer walk. I have participated for the past 3 years in memory of my grandmother and former co worker and friend Jolyn Slate. This is a big event that we love to participate in and bring about the awareness of this disease, unfortunately the world lost someone over the weekend to the disease. Plus size model and singer Joanne Borgella died from endometrial cancer after being diagnosed with it over a year ago.
