Jennette McCurdy’s Mom Passes After Long Fight With Cancer

Jennette McCurdy’s Mom Passes After Long Fight With Cancer

Our hearts go out to the Nickelodeon star and singer Jennette McCurdy, after the passing of her mother Debra on Friday. Jennette’s mom had a long 17 year battle with mammary ductal cell carcinoma (breast cancer) and was diagnosed when the iCarly star was only 2 years old. In 2010 the cancer returned after some time in remission and sadly took her life on Friday September 20th. Jennette’s current boyfriend Andre Drummond tweeted today “First time in my life, I don’t have all the answers for something, Ugh” possibly in reference to the tragic news. An account named #staystrongjennette♡ replied to the NBA star with:

There may be people out there that don’t this, but the always funny and sweet McCurdy is also an amazing singer herself. The young actress has a beautiful voice and has made her share of music video’s over the years. In honor of her mother, we are featuring a video for Jennette’s single “Not That Far Away” from back in 2011. Released on Capital Records, the song is a note to a mother from her daughter after she moves away to California to chase her dreams.

It’s been announced that Jennette’s appearance at the Nickelodeon Worldwide Day of Play has been canceled. Her website also posted this, “It’s understandable that Jennette will need plenty of time to recover and needs to be with her family during such a devastating loss of her mother, who has meant the entire world to her and was a role-model to being the strong woman she is today”. We love you Jennette and our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.
