Di Kershaw spent several weeks in hospital to treat her illness. However, the throat cancer had grown to the stage that it was inoperable. 

As a result, she opted to end her life earlier rather than later because she did not want to put her family watching her struggle when receiving treatment. The netizens are saddened to hear the news of her demise and mourn her loss on social media. 

Moreover, Gogglebox AU has launched its first episode of the new season and paid tribute to a late shining star of the show, Kershaw. 

What Illness Did Di Kershaw Die From?

Di Kershaw kept her illness private from the public. She was treated for nine weeks at Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital in Darlinghurst.

But, two weeks before her death, she was shifted to nearby Sacred Heart Hospice. But, as per News.Au, she chose to end her life earlier.

She was suffering from throat cancer. It had grown to the extent that it was inoperable.

The doctors had provided her the option to seek chemo or radiation, but she was too weak to handle that. Since she would have felt incapacitated for another six months of her life, she chose to end it sooner because she did not want to put her family through watching her treatment.

Her grieving spouse never thought that life would put them through that situation. Many of her fans were also heartbroken to hear how tough a decision she had taken in the last days of her life. 

Friends and fans have been sending prayers and condolences to her family ever since the news of her demise circulated on the internet in late July 2022.
