This is very, very sad. Yet, I don't understand how anyone can die of cervical cancer in 2012. This is why women get pap smears every year. If this is one of those fluky things that happened within a year, then I apologize.

So sad. God bless her family. Those of us who have lost a loved one to cancer truly understand Shar's words. You never know you could feel such hatred toward a disease until it happens.

I read she needed twenty-five thousand for medical bills. Fans gave about 60% of the money. I can't believe all the celebrities that claim to care a couldn't help. They buy bentley's and million dollar homes but can't help a friend. Can't wait to read all the tweets from these celebrities.
