Tanya Jones Cause of Death, Skin Cancer
She passed away aged 53 at her home in Los Angeles yesterday surrounded by her family, after her condition had worsened in recent weeks. Tanya Jones’ cause of death was cancer.
Whatever you thought of Vinnie Jones as a footballer (or actor), it is desperately sad that he should lose his wife Tanya to cancer at 53… but at the same time we can marvel at medical science which afforded her another 30 years of life after a heart transplant. RIP Tanya
