Actress Galyn Görg, known for portraying a boxer who knocked out Will Smith on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," has died at the age of 55.

On a GoFundMe page set up for Görg’s funeral arrangements, a relative revealed that Görg had been battling cancer, which had spread "throughout her entire body and lungs." They added, "We were unaware of just how sick she was as the diagnosis was a shock to the entire family."

After hearing the diagnosis, Görg’s family rushed to Oahu, where she was getting treatment.

Görg’s sister Sunny revealed that she was given "a few days" to live earlier this week, but that she died the next day. Sunny shared on Facebook, "Our beautiful, kind, loving, talented, intelligent, magical sister passed this morning at 11:32am. Thank you all for the love and support that has poured in from around the world; from Thailand, Peru, Moscow, Chile, Europe......Prayers and blessings from have been made by family and friends from diverse faiths from Muslims, Christians, Mormons, Buddhists, Native Americans."
