Actress Sperber Loses Breast Cancer Fight

Actress Wendie Jo Sperber, who starred opposite Tom Hanks on TV’s "Bosom Buddies" and who in his words became "a walking inspiration" after she contracted a cancer, has lost the battle for her life. She was in her 40s. She was quoted saying the plain truth: that "Doctors aren’t gods – they cannot tell you when you’re going to die."

She battled on for eight years – surely to the dismay of the medical establishment.

Wendie is remembered for her role of Linda McFly in the Back To The Future movies.

She had two children – and she is also survived by both of her parents.

Tis always the good ones who leave prematurely… alas…
