Jane Marczewski, known professionally as Nightbirde, has left America’s Got Talent (AGT) amid her breast cancer battle, according to Health.
She is best known for receiving a golden buzzer after singing her original song “It’s OK” during her audition on AGT.
The 30-year-old singer revealed the devastating news to fans on Instagram on Monday.
Captioning a pic of herself in bed, Marczewski wrote, “Sharing my heart with the world on AGT has been an honor and a dream come true. My point of view this summer has been astounding. What a miracle that the pain I’ve walked through can be reworked into beauty that makes people all over the world open their eyes wider.”
However, Marczewski said her health “has taken a turn for the worse” since her audition, adding, “the fight with cancer is demanding all of my energy and attention.”
“I am so sad to announce that I won’t be able to continue forward on this season of AGT,” she continued. “Life doesn’t always give breaks to those that deserve it—but we knew that already.”
AGT’s Instagram account wrote, “We’re keeping you in our thoughts for a full recovery!”
Hannah Brown wrote, “Sending you love and prayers! What an inspiration you are to us all!”
During her audition on AGT, Marczewski said that she only has a 2% chance of surviving metastatic breast cancer, as it has spread to her spine, lungs, and liver, per Health.
She was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017. In June, she told NBC 4, “I can’t tell people what will happen but I can tell people what is possible, I can show people what is possible.”
Marczewski said she was given three to six months to live in 2019. She told NBC 4 that she is “not afraid” to die, added, “I’m ready to die whenever it’s time for me to die.”
The singer thanked her followers for their support in her Instagram post. She ended the note by saying, “Stay with me, I’ll be better soon. I’m planning my future, not my legacy. Pretty beat up, but I’ve still got dreams.”
