Jessi Zazu, of Nashville band Those Darlins, has died after an extended battle with cervical cancer, reports The Tennesseean. She was 28. Jessi was diagnosed with cancer in 2016 and said at the time, "This is typically what they would call a ‘no cure scenario,’ but I refuse to believe that to be the case. I feel healthy, happy, hopeful, determined, positive, and full of sparks and nails. In a sense: there’s a tumor growing on my body, I don’t know what lays in store, but I ain’t afraid anymore. Yes, I guess I am a mystic mind after all."

Fuck cancer. Rest in peace, Jessi.
