British journalist Deborah James dies at 40 of cancer

Six years after battling bowel cancer, English journalist Deborah James died Monday, 28, at the age of 40. She was the introduction to the podcast Me, You and The Big C (“Me, You and the Big C”, in free translation) that talked about the daily lives of people with the disease.

The announcement was made on their social networks by a message written by family members. “We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Mrs. Deborah James; the most wonderful wife, daughter, sister, mother. Deborah passed away peacefully today, surrounded by her family.”

The presenter used the last years of her life to fight for people with cancer. In addition to bringing knowledge to the people, it has raised more than £3 million – about 20 million Brazilian reais – for a UK disease research fund called Bowelbab (used at Instagram).

The family said, “Deborah shared her experience with the world to raise awareness, break down barriers, challenge taboos, and change the conversation about cancer. Even in her most challenging moments, her determination to raise funds and awareness was inspiring.”

In May of this year, the journalist posted a farewell to her social networks. “The message I didn’t want to write. We’ve tried everything but my body doesn’t play ball,” he wrote.

“My active care has stopped and I am now at home with my wonderful family around me and focusing on not feeling pain during the time I spend with them.”
