Traci Braxton Succumbs to Esophageal Cancer at the Age of 50



Today we lift tribute to a lovely and endearing soul Traci Braxton. Early this afternoon, T. Braxton of Braxton Family Values turned in her earthly cloak. The consummate performer and sister to Toni, Tamar, Towanda, and Trina Braxton succumbed to Esophageal Cancer.

Traci’s Life

Most remember Traci for her bright and bubbly personality on Braxton Family Values. Traci was a woman for all seasons. She was an actress, a vocalist, and a servant to the community. Sadly, Traci was merely 50 years young at her passing. However, the life she lived in her years is an amazing tribute. As a source notes,

She supported charities and nonprofit organizations helping women and children facing health and societal challenges.

Those are the acts of a selfless individual.

Traci’s Health

The world was also not privy to Traci’s battle. Her husband let the world in today, then revealing his wife waged a timely fight. Kevin Surrat had this to say of his wife, the artist,

“She was privately “undergoing a series of treatment for Esophageal cancer” for the past year.”

And as Traci’s son affectionally recalls his mom’s fought a valiant fight to the point of triumph,

“She fought to the end, and today she’s at peace.”

That speaks volumes of her strength and the love she put out into the world.

Toni’s Tribute

Toni Braxton, sister of Traci, a global superstar and legendary vocalist, also took a minute to honor her sister. Toni’s tribute is beautiful and pure,

“Traci passed this morning as the snow was falling. Our angel is now a snowflake,”

What a lovely befitting memory. Even more beautiful was that Traci was surrounded by people she loved at her death.

Last Words

Today, as her family mourns, so does the entire world. One loss sends ripples throughout as the world is now diminished by extinguishing one more light. So we send our deepest condolences to her family and friends at this time.
