'ANTM' alum Jael Strauss was dedicated to helping addicts

Jael Strauss

We send our thoughts and condolences to Jael's loved ones during this hard time. "She brought so much light to people", her family said in a statement.

But her happiness was cut short following her shock diagnosis two months ago on October 2 when she received news she had terminal breast cancer. Her friends wrote on the crowd sourcing page, "She has just begun chemo, but we do not know how things will play out".

Doctors only gave her a "few months" to live, but she was hoping for "another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013", referring to the intervention that helped her overcome her drug addiction.

"I don't want to die", she continued.

On a 2012 episode of "Dr. Phil", Strauss revealed she was battling an addiction to methamphetamine. This past August, she celebrated five years of sobriety.

She entered hospice on November 22. "So many things I never knew about life", Jael reportedly wrote at the time. "Or death. So many things", she said. The former ANTM contestant previously announced her stage 4 breast cancer diagnosis on Facebook in October 2018.

"ANTM" host Tyra Banks has yet to publicly address Strauss' death, but Jaslene Gonzalez, who competed alongside her and eventually won the competition, remembered her on Twitter Tuesday evening.

When was Jael diagnosed with cancer?

"Today we lost our earth angel and she is back in the spirit world from which she came and we know she will be watching over all of us", the page read. Service work feels better than the greatest high.

Stage IV, or metastatic breast cancer, isn't the same for everyone. Sources close to the model told the outlet that her conditioned had worsened on Monday evening and that she'd been unconscious for several days, with her family not allowing anymore visitors. "Those of us who know her understand that she is a fighter, but this fight will be a long, rocky, and definitely expensive one". "Sobriety makes you weird not normal and I'd be dead if it weren't for all the love and forgiveness I've been showered with by my friends and my family". Thank you to my partner Cody Bear for showing me what real love is like.
