Jeanette Lee’s Cancer Diagnosis
Billiard legend Jeanette Lee has been diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer, according to the American Poolplayers Association. Known as “The Black Widow,” the 49-year-old mother of three is revered as one of the greatest billiard players of all time.
“I intend to bring the same resolve that I brought to the pool table in this fight,” Lee said in a statement released Wednesday. “Jim Valvano told us so eloquently, ‘Never give up.’ I owe it to my three young daughters to do exactly that,” she added, probably referring to the late college basketball coach who also had cancer and died in 1993.
George and his ex-wife have three daughters, an adopted son, and two sons from George’s previous relationship. Jeanette once said about her children:
“I always loved children and I still love them. I wanted a future to help nurture their minds and hopefully always make a difference in a positive way.”
