Aside from battling the coronavirus, Torres also had breast cancer and was recovering from surgery to implant a chemo port, Detore told People. She then developed a fever, was hospitalized, and tested positive for COVID-19.

“She was placed on a ventilator then they took off the ventilator. She really was fighting, but I guess she couldn’t really battle it. It was too much,” Detore shared. “She went back to the hospital thinking she had an infection. She had a fever. They found out she had COVID.”
