In 2018, Chi Chi was diagnosed with scleroderma – a rare disease that hardens and tightens the skin and connective tissues.
She previously wrote: “Lots of people don’t know but I was recently diagnosed with scleroderma I have been dealing with this over the past eight or nine months but was afraid to expose it to the public in fear of losing out on jobs and facing criticism from friends and fans.
I feel it’s finally time to let the world know what’s really going on with Chi Chi… bottling this up has had me in a state of depression… it has made me hate my appearance and also made me stray away from the public eye but I’m no longer hiding and living in a state of fear.
“I just ask you all to keep me in your prayers as I battle with this life changing illness.”
Our thoughts are with Chi Chi during this time.
