Tony Steward’s Fiancee Brittany Burns Dies
The fiancee of a Buffalo Bills player has unfortunately lost her battle with cancer.
Brittany Burns, the 26-year-old wife-to-be of Tony Steward, passed away this morning after a bout with ovarian cancer.
The 26-year old, who got engaged to Steward last year, was diagnosed with ovarian cancer on Dec. 9. She was treated at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania.
Burns attended Clemson with Steward and was on the rowing team, according to Clemson sports website OrangeandWhite.com.
After her diagnosis, Burns and Steward created a Fight Like a Girl campaign to help raise money and awareness for others with ovarian cancer.
He was selected by Buffalo in the sixth round of the 2015 draft and played in seven games this season.
So sad, she was way too young.
Condolences to Tony.
