Jennette McCurdy Mother's Death

It’s been such a sad time for Jennette. Her mother Debra passed away on Sept. 20, after losing a 17-year battle with breast cancer. Now, the actress is speaking out and thanking those who have helped her through it all.

Jennette McCurdy has taken to Twitter to explain how thankful she is for the outpouring of support from her friends, fans and family after losing her mother Debra to breast cancer.

Jennette McCurdy Tweets After Mother’s Tragic Death

“Overwhelmed by the love and support coming my way. Thank you tremendously,” Jennette, 21, tweeted on Sept. 21, one day after the tragic death of her mother.

Jennette and her mother were extremely close — the actress even wrote “Off-Camera, My Mom’s Fight With Cancer,” an article explaining the details of her mother’s battle and how the family was coping. It was published in the Wall Street Journal in June 2011.

Below is an excerpt:

I can’t imagine how difficult it must be for my mother to tolerate all she has gone through and continues to go through – the pain, the worry and the battle. She wakes up every day hurting and goes to sleep hurting even more. My mother, the constant optimist and effervescent, sprightly woman I know her to be, is caged along with this hideous beast they call cancer.

Fans & Friends Support Jennette

Jennette’s costars, fans and friends have also taken to Twitter to show their support for their friend.

Sam & Cat costar Ariana Grande tweeted, “I love you @jennettemccurdy.”

Actress Madison McLaughlin wrote, “Horrible news. Sending so much love to @jennettemccurdy during this horrific time.”

Disney channel star Debby Ryan tweeted “I just found out. @jennettemccurdy my heart is broken for you, my love and prayers flow out to you and for you.”

Our thoughts are with Jennette and her family during this time.
