Death of Bernie Nolan
I am so desperately sad to hear of the death this morning of actress and singer, Bernie Nolan. She was only 52 and leaves behind her loving husband and beloved daughter Erin, 14.
Bernie was first diagnosed with HER2 breast cancer in 2010 and had a cancer recurrence last year.
In an attempt to make the most of the final stage of her life, Bernie revealed that she made a Bucket List of things she wanted to do with her husband and daughter, including visiting Venice and New York. However the cancer became so far advanced she was left unable to travel, and was unable to complete the list.
Her one wish is that she didn’t want to be just remembered as a cancer patient
‘Cancer has become a part of my journey but it’s not the whole story,’ she shared. ‘There’s so much more to me than that. I’m a wife, mother, daughter, singer, actress, sister, friend and auntie. Those are the roles I want to define me.
RIP Bernie Nolan, wife, mother, daughter, singer, actress, sister, friend and auntie.
I’m currently trying not to bubble! Hope you are ok? Axx

I’m so sorry to hear that. 52 is no age at all, and Bernie managed to fit a lot into her time.
She was a warrior – sending good energy, love and prayers to the family
My wife was diagnised with the same cancer last year -Triple negative BC, and it brings home just how aggressive this can be. I always assumed BC was ultimately very curable. How wrong was I. Good luck to all with this dreadful disease, and esp those with Triple Negative.
So sad – such a brave lady.
I’m always sad to see another Stage IV sister leave this world.
Sort of off the subject, but for her family: I went to NY recently and it was no fun for me, sick as I was. It caused a lot of pain. That is a healthy person’s town. I wish she’d been healthy enough to go of course; that is everybody’s dream.
My heart goes out to her family and loved ones for the loss of this beautiful soul.
Thank you all for you comments. John I wish you and your wife well.
This is really sad news. I appreciate you acknowledgement that she be remembered for so much more besides being a stage IV breast cancer patient. As you say, “She was a wife, mother, daughter, singer, actress, sister, friend and auntie.” My heart goes out to her family, friends, and fans. Being 52 was just way too soon. She will be missed.
I am 51. My mother Wilda Holman got breast cancer in 1977 when I was 15. She had a radical mastectomy. This was a very hard time for me. My mother did talk about her condition. Reading these stories help me today. She died at 52 with me by her side. She was given 7 years to live and she never told my brother or I. They say time heals all wounds but this one will never heal. I would love to talk to others whom have gone thru this at email@example.com
