After fighting cancer for more than seven years, the Catholic singer Francis Esther Marizán died this Sunday, according to a publication made through her official Facebook account.
The news, which was known through social networks, dismayed her thousands of followers, who expressed their affection for Marizan, whom they defined as a talented and brave woman.
«For many years we had the honor of having her. Her charisma, dynamism, and great talent always stood out in our team. She was a very special person, always ready to help, full of encouragement, joy, and love for our children. Our heart is saddened but we know that it is in a better place where pain and disease do not exist. That was part of the message from Extraordinary Camp, one of the companies for which Marizán worked.
Several years ago, the artist narrated that when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she was taken by surprise because there was no history of the disease in her family. But she decided to go ahead and “get her strength”, especially since her daughter was just over a year old at the time.
Then five years later, the breast cancer metastasized to the lungs and bones.
“It was difficult because now I had the aggravation of two metastases in addition to the fact that I had already made up my mind to live without cancer,” said in 2019 the Catholic singer, who belonged to the renowned group Alfareros among others.
For 12 years Marizán has performed as a soloist, reaffirming her commitment to her faith and carrying a message of hope.
According to the publication made on Facebook, the flower offerings for the artist will be destined for foundations of people with cancer.
