Hilary was first diagnosed with cancer in October 2017 and put up an amazing fight against the disease. She endured endless rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery and after major surgery in May 2018 it was thought she had beaten the disease. Sadly, the cancer returned and Hilary finally succumbed on Wednesday, she was 63.
