Suzanne Whang, host of House Hunters, died after a long battle with breast cancer, according to CBS Los Angeles.

In a Facebook post published Thursday night, Whang’s partner Jeff Vezain said he was by her side when she died around 7:20 p.m.

“For thirteen years she confronted cancer with courage, humor, determination and optimism,” Vezain said in the post. “She was immensely encouraged by the love of her family, friends and those she had yet to meet.” Vezain said he knew that she would have preferred that her life be celebrated, as opposed to being mourned, but he said people should cry and laugh and everything in between.

Whang also had a recurring roles on the General Hospital, Criminal Minds and NYPD Blue and was a radio host, author, minister and political activist, according to CBS.
