Not to mention her show “The Big Reveal” on HGTV, as well as guest hosting on the Game Show Network’s “GSN Live. Her former business partner says that Bo “bit off more than she could chew everyday, she loved to have fun”.
Griffin began to experience pain in her back in January and went to have it checked out. She then received the grim diagnosis of intestinal cancer. She was scheduled for surgery and hoped to beat it, but unfortunately never recovered. It a matter of three weeks she had passed away. Intestinal cancer occurs when cancerous cells form in the small intestine. According to the Cancer Center, intestinal cancer is rare, but it is important to recognize the symptoms. Because the symptoms mimic other common ailments, it is important to see your doctor for diagnosis.
Potential intestinal cancer symptoms include:
•Abdominal pain, cramps (i.e., after eating)
•Unexplained weight loss
•Weak or tired feeling
•Nausea or vomiting
•Bloody stool (may be bright red or black in color)
•A lump in the abdomen
•Loss of appetite
