“It is with heavy hearts that we share that our friend and billiards icon, Jeanette Lee, has been diagnosed with Stage 4 ovarian cancer,” the GoFundMe said. “Cancer has fully metastasized into her lymph nodes and the prognosis is dire. At this stage, her doctors say she has a few months to a year left to live. In typical Black Widow fashion, she has vowed to fight the progress of her disease as fiercely as possible with both chemotherapy, which has already begun, and a succession of upcoming surgeries.

“Jeanette’s largest and most pressing concern is the well-being of her three young girls Cheyenne (16), Chloe (11), and Savannah (10). Jeanette has been a single mother for the last several years. The future care, well-being, and education of her girls is the biggest cause of anxiety for her.”

The goal of the GoFundMe page is to try to raise $250,000 for the family. However, at the time of publication, it has raised $22,317.

In the 1990s, Lee was the No. 1 ranked female pool player in the world. In 1998, she also received the Women’s Professional Billiard Association (WPBA) Sportsperson of the Year Award.
