LOS ANGELES (AP) — Daisy Lewellyn, who starred in Bravo's Blood, Sweat & Heels reality series, died Friday of a rare form of cancer, said the channel. She was 36.

The California-born Lewellyn was surrounded by her family and friends, Bravo said in a statement that remembered the stylist as a wonderful woman.

Lewellyn was diagnosed in February 2014 with stage-three bile-duct cancer, a rare cancer affecting the liver, and underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments, said the channel.

She carried on with her life and was open about fighting the disease, addressing it on Blood, Sweat & Heels, which follows the personal lives and careers of a group of New York City women.

Part of the fashion industry for 15 years, Lewellyn was a stylist and the author of Never Pay Retail Again. She also had worked at fashion and lifestyle magazines.

"We will miss her incredible spirit and heart, and extend our deepest sympathies to her family and friends," said series producer Leftfield Pictures in a statement.

Bravo hasn't made any decisions about Blood, Sweat & Heels, the channel said in a statement when asked about the show's future.
