Jael Strauss has seriously bad news to share with fans.
The “America’s Next Top Model” contestant revealed her stage IV breast cancer diagnosis last week.
“I was gonna write some long thing but some of you guys deserve to know,” Strauss, 34, wrote on Facebook. “On Oct. 2 I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer. It has aggressively spread throughout my body and is incurable.”
In a heart-crushing moment, Strauss bluntly stated, “I don’t want to die. I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013.”
The model’s friends have already started a GoFundMe to raise money for her medical expenses. In just four days, the campaign is halfway to its $15,000 goal.
Strauss made the announcement just four days into Breast Cancer Awareness month.
