Sad news from Kyrgyzstan - Miss Kyrgyzstan 2013, Zhibek Nukeeva has lost her fight against cancer at the age of 22. We reported a few months ago that Zhibek desperately needed financial help for treatment against this aggressive form of cancer. Despite the money being raised, she could not beat this horrific disease. Nukeeva represented Kyrgyzstan at Miss World 2013. She leaves behind her husband and 8 month old son.
Rest in peace, Zhibek! This is just absolutely heartbreaking and my thoughts are with her family.
