Singer/Actress, Traci Braxton has passed away after a years-long battle with Esophageal Cancer. A report from E! NEWS said Braxton’s death was confirmed on Saturday March 12th, by her son Kevin Surratt Jr.
“When I heard the news about my mother being sick, first things she said was ‘I’m going to fight and beat this.’ She fought to the end and today she’s at peace. I love my mother and this hurts so much, but I’m at peace knowing she isn’t in pain anymore. I love you ma. I’m going to miss you.”
Kevin Surratt Jr. posted to his social media page along with a picture of him embracing his mother. Traci Braxton’s friend and publicist, Tomasina Perkins-Washington, reportedly told NBC News that Traci had spent the last year in a hospice. Perkins-Washington also said Traci was surrounded by her “sisters, mom and friends” who were all by her side when she passed.
