Toronto comedian Sandra Carusi lost her battle with breast cancer on Aug. 13.
Carusi had been battling cancer for the last five years and was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in April 2014.
Carusi, who hosted Inside Jokes on 640 Toronto and produced The Parenting Showand The Dating & Relationship Show on the same station, passed away peacefully surrounded by family.
In 2017, Carusi was battling a fifth round of breast cancer. The tumour was large, painful and aggressive.
It had been an extremely emotional time for Carusi, who was a single mother of two young boys. But she channelled that emotion into comedy and towards helping and inspiring others who are facing the same or similar health issues.
