After losing her battle with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer, Marnie Schulenburg is dead. She was 37.
On Tuesday, her representative told The Hollywood Reporter that Marnie Schulenburg died in a hospital in Bloomfield, New Jersey.
Marnie Schulenburg is best known for her roles as Jo Sullivan on the “One Life to Live” reboot and Alison Stewart on CBS’ “As the World Turns.”
Marnie Schulenburg was released from the hospital on Mother’s day to spend time with her family, SheKnows Soaps reported.
“Please don’t say Marnie lost her battle with cancer. It’s simply not true. According to Variety, I watched her kick cancer’s ass every day since diagnosis,” Robidas reportedly said in a Facebook post. “She is incredible. We chose to attack her diagnosis with blind optimism. We only talked about the future and continued moving forward. I don’t know if this was right, but it’s all we knew how to do.”
“I know that me being here for [Coda] is the best gift I can give her,” she wrote recently on Facebook, according to the SheKnows Soaps report. “But right now, it feels like settling since she’s getting a half-life version of myself. My mother showed up 100 percent all day every day for me growing up, or at least it seemed that way. I want to give Coda the same, but I must be kind to myself and remember that nothing is permanent.”
