House Hunters’ Suzanne Whang dies of breast cancer

Friends, family and fans are mourning the death this morning of TV host and actress Suzanne Whang.

She hosted HGTV’s popular House Hunters from 1999 to 2007. She’s also won numerous comedy awards and appeared in a recurring role as a spa manager in NBC’s Las Vegas which ran from 2003 to 2008.

Whang, 56, died after a long battle with breast cancer which was diagnosed in 2006, reported CNN.

“Suzanne was warm, funny and kind with a distinctive voice that made everyone feel at home. Our HGTV family mourns her loss and wishes to express deepest condolences to her friends, fans and family who knew and loved her,” the network said in a statement.

Her partner Jeff Vezain announced her death on Facebook.

“For thirteen years she confronted cancer with courage, humor, determination and optimism,” he wrote. “She was immensely encouraged by the love of her family, friends and those she had yet to meet. Your kind, loving messages always lifted her spirits. I know she would prefer that her life be celebrated, as opposed to her passing mourned, but I also know how vehemently she disagreed with anyone being told, “Don’t cry.” So…cry if you will. I’ve been crying a LOT! And laughing…and everything in between.”

E put together this look at her life.
