“Such a vibrant, loving, genuine spirit,” Nicki wrote alongside an angelic-looking photo of Ang.

“She was so at peace with her death,” Ang’s sister, Janine Detoure, said in a statement. “She was OK with it. She said she didn’t want to live being on the medicine, doing all that. She didn’t want to do that. And she said, ‘If it’s my time, it’s my time. Just tell me. I want to spend my time with my grandchildren and my family.’ She wanted to be home and all that.'” As hard and painful as the last few final days were, we are glad to know that Ang found some form of peace.
Doctors found a lemon-sized tumor in Ang’s throat back in March, but after two surgeries she was declared cancer-free. However, the disease spread quickly to her lung and brains, and she was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer in December. “Ang was scared,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The moment she found out she had cancer, she was scared she was going to die.” Our hearts are with Ang’s family as they deal with this difficult loss.
