JOANNE BORGELLA: PLUS MODEL LOSES BATTLE WITH CANCER
CANCER WINS…THE WORLD LOSES….
It was just last year that we reported Joanne Borgella’s diagnosis with cancer had spread to her chest. Within that year, Borgella was adamant about sharing her health status with her fans and followers- releasing videos with updates on her progression.
All of Borgella’s videos were very hopeful- throughout her cancer journey; she showed nothing but strength and determination to beat the disease. So it comes as a total shock- with the news of her death.
As a Wilhelmina plus model, recording artist, and reality t.v. star- Borgella took on an additional title as fashion designer with the launch of her new fashion line JBNY which premiered at Plus Night Out in 2013. Borgella’s other accomplishments include starring in Monique’s Fat Chance, Nuvo TV’s Curvy Girls, and American Idol contestant.
On behalf Manik Mag writers and staff we wish everyone who knew Joanne the comfort of good memories and the strength to move forward without her sunshine-spirit.
Rest-in-Power Joanne Borgella. We’ll miss you.
