Former 'America's Next Top Model' contestant Jael Strass dies of cancer at 34

“I was gonna write some long thing but some of you guys deserve to know, on Oct. 2 I was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer,” she wrote on Facebook Oct. 4. “It has aggressively spread throughout my body and is incurable. With treatment it may prolong my life longer than the ‘few months’ doctors said I could make it. I don’t want to die. I need another one of those miracles that I got back in 2013.”
