A woman who was battling a rare form of cancer has died from the disease.
She was 64-year-old Nancy Boester, a physician from Wisconsin.
Her husband, Paul, died last year after suffering complications from her cancer.
Boester was diagnosed with stage 4 melanoma in 2016, the same cancer she battled for two decades.
She had been living in a nursing home and working at a nursing facility in New York.
Nancy Boesters death was announced Saturday by her husband, former Gov.
Boezers cancer treatment was initially aggressive and took her five months to finish.
Her husband had cancer in 2013, and she had the disease in 2014.
Her treatment was aggressive and included radiation and chemotherapy.
A Facebook post from her husband says she will never be forgotten.
“Nancy was a dedicated and dedicated wife, mother, mother-in-law, daughter and friend.
She will be sorely missed by all who knew her and loved her.
I pray for her recovery,” Paul Walker said in a statement.
Walker also thanked Wisconsin Gov.
John Gregg for his support and support of Boeser’s family.
Boeser also shared a video of herself at a fundraiser in February.
She was wearing a wig and a dress and a white tank top.
