LFO’s Devin Lima has died at 41 from cancer
Devin Lima of ’90s boy band (and “Summer Girls” hitmakers) LFO has died after a battle with cancer. He was only 41. Us Weekly reports:
“My son has passed away,” his mom, Filomena Lima, tells Us. “His fiancée was living with him and let us know that he passed at 2:45 in the morning. He was struggling for 13 months since his cancer diagnosis. The family is not good.”
Lima (real name Harold Lima) had been diagnosed with stage IV adrenal cancer in October 2017. His bandmate Brad Fischetti announced the news in a YouTube video to fans at the time.
“Devin asked me to give you this update without him because, frankly, he’s just not feeling very well,” Fischetti, 43, said in the video. “But he asked me to send you his love and gratitude for all the love and prayers you guys have sent his way. He’s had a tough recovery. He had a few really difficult days in the hospital.”
Fischetti revealed that the cancer had spread to Lima’s kidney, which doctors surgically removed, and that he planned to undergo chemotherapy and radiation.
“I wish we had better news to share,” Fischetti said in the 2017 video. “It’s devastating news, but at the same time, there’s nobody I know stronger than Devin Lima. No one has a stronger body, mind or soul.”
This comes eight years after LFO’s Rich Cronin died at 36 from cancer.
