Sharon Leming passes away after long fight with cancer

Josiah Leming is known for his strength and determination, two things that he got from his mother, Sharon Leming. Sharon Leming was diagnosed with leiomyosarcoma cancer and has fought it for 10 long years, but on June 16, 2009 the cancer overtook her. Josiah released a statement to MTV.com shortly after: “To all my friends: I just wanted to thank everyone for their outpouring of love and kindness. Mom fought this for a long time, [and] passed away on Tuesday, June 16th surrounded by her family and loved ones,” Josiah’s statement read. “She had aggressive leiomyosarcoma and she fought it for 10 years. … I know many of you got to know my mom through her postings, and we all thank you for sharing in her life and story. Now my family needs time to be together, and mourn in private.” A funeral will be held in Morristown on June 19. Please leave kind messages for Josiah and his family as they go through the mourning process.

  2. It is indeed true that on Tuesday July 16th, with the whole Leming crew and several close friends by her side, one of the dearest woman I have ever had the pleasure to know passed away in Knoxville Tenn. Sharon Leming was a true force of nature and a beautiful inspiration for us all.
