Woman Featured on 'Buddy Call' Passes Away

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Mary Haddon, abreast cancersurvivor twice featured on News19's Buddy Call 19 segment, passed away Thursday.

We first introduced you to Haddon in 2012. At that time, she was a media specialist at A.C. Flora High School and had been battling breast cancer for over a year.

As it turns out, her mother had battled breast cancer when Haddon was a teenager.

Earlier this month, News19 profiled her a second time, when we learned that she'd been diagnosed with a rare form of breast cancer. Haddon at that time remained optimistic about her chances of beating the disease again.

Unfortunately, after a short stay in the hospital Mary was unable to regain the strength she needed to fight the disease diagnosed this time in stage 3.

Mary Haddon had a no quit attitude and love for her family that will live on.
