'(She ended up with an infection after cutting out the damn cancer),' he continued.

Brad went on to describe Thea as the 'greatest cheerleader to me and my family' and said 'the pain is so deep.'

Zitzner continued, 'Thanks Feefer for your leadership of your family. The roll you have taken with my kids and all your family sadly can't be replaced. I can see hundreds of fan tributes already online so your love was shared far and wide.

'I've never met a person who knew you who didn't think you were the greatest person alive. That lasted even up through your stay in the hospital as I'm told the nurses and doctors also fell in love.

'You loved life and even know I know the final outcome I love your decision to go for it and to try to win. Damnit sticks!'
