Fans are saying a final farewell to Bowelbabe. 

British journalist Deborah James died peacefully on June 28 following a battle with bowel cancer, according to a statement shared on her Instagram account. According to the Instagram post, James died surrounded by her family.

“We are deeply saddened to announce the death of Dame Deborah James,” read the message, which praised James as “the most amazing wife, daughter, sister [and] mummy.”

The touching tribute also hailed the BBC podcast host, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2016 and documented her journey as BowelBabe on social media, as “an inspiration” for her charitable work in founding the BowelBabe Fund, which raises funds for clinical trials and cancer research.

The statement stated that Deborah shared her experiences with the world in order to increase awareness, reduce barriers, challenge taboos, and shift the conversation about cancer. She was determined to help others, even through the toughest moments.
