Report: Patsy Ramsey fighting cancer again

Times-Call staff and wire reports

DENVER — JonBenet Ramsey’s mother is undergoing outpatient chemotherapy for a fourth occurrence of ovarian cancer, the Rocky Mountain News reported.

The newspaper reported in Saturday’s editions that Patsy Ramsey is staying at the Roswell, Ga., home of her father as she battles the disease.

Linda McLean, who coached Ramsey when she competed as Miss West Virginia in the 1977 Miss America pageant, said Ramsey, 48, is in the most advanced stage of ovarian cancer.

“I believe that the stress that she had to go through (in the wake of JonBenet’s murder) took years off her life,” McLean said.

Six-year-old JonBenet, a child beauty queen, was found beaten and strangled in her parents’ Boulder basement in 1996. There have been no arrests.
