Unhappy Belinda Emmett (Wife of Rove McManus) Passes Away. 1974-2006

ACTOR Belinda Emmett, wife of television personality Rove McManus, has died after a long battle with cancer.

She died at St Vincent's Hospital, Sydney, early this morning, with her husband by her side.

"It is with great sadness we advise that Belinda Emmett's battle with cancer has ended," Emmett's family said in a statement.

"Belinda passed away just after dawn this morning at St Vincent's Hospital in Sydney with her family and husband by her side.

"Those close to her have requested respect for their privacy at this time."

Emmett grew up on NSW's Central Coast and got her acting break when she appeared on popular long-running soap Home and Away, playing Rebecca Fisher, between 1996 and 1999.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1998 at the age of 24.

The actor successfully underwent surgery to remove a malignant tumour, followed by six weeks of radiotherapy.

In 2001, Emmett was diagnosed with secondary bone cancer.

If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

Probably one of the nicest celebrities in Australia, and was so modest with her fight, not drawing too much attention to herself as a victim, unlike someone else.

But R.I.P , it was sad to hear this this morning

Now i know your not talking about Kylie. She is not in the situation to be silent in her fight as the reporters and all would never leave her alone. Totally different situation. She decided to be pro active with her situation. She is a fighter and to be admired. Anyways...i hope Belinda is resting well in heaven

Actually, it's not really that different a situation, as Belinda was a well known actress in Australia, thanks to Home and Away, and it was quite public at first with her breast cancer. This time though, it's a surprise, because there was absolutely nothing in the news. It's really sad that she's gone. Strength to her family and to Rove.

That said, Kylie was not in the media all that much either, as she was in France, and Kylie is not acting like a victim, and is only now speaking out alot more about her fight to hopefully help others, and of course she lived, and is going on with her life now, which includes touring. So she has to do interviews, and of course then she's gonna be asked about the cancer.
