“As you know, I had breast cancer twenty years ago. It comes back every once in a while, but I keep beating it down.” I’ve used the best traditional and alternative medicines to treat it. This is not something new for me. You can count on me to fight. I know how to put on my war gear.
People will remember Somers most for her work on “Three’s Company,” the famous ABC show with John Ritter and Joyce DeWitt. For five years, she played the funny and naive Chrissy Snow.
Aside from those, she is famous for her parts in “Starsky and Hutch,” “Hollywood Wives,” “She’s the Sheriff,” “Step by Step,” and many other hit TV shows.
“American Graffiti,” “Ants!,” “Yesterday’s Hero,” “Nothing Personal,” “Serial Mom,” “The Nutty Professor,” “Say It Isn’t So,” and other films have her in them.
The last time she did anything was in 2001, around the time her health problems started to show.
She died just one day before she would have been 77 years old. Her son Bruce Jr. will miss her.
