“My Auntie Kim lost her battle with Breast Cancer early Sunday morning. She was a warrior and wanted me to share this,” he tweeted, posting a video his aunt, Kimberly Bennett, made earlier this year for the Inflammatory Breast Cancer Foundation.

In the video, Bennett tells her story, explaining, as Chance noted in a second tweet, that that inflammatory breast cancer “is commonly misdiagnosed and doesn’t come with the same symptoms” as more common forms of breast cancer.
