The Biggest Loser family has lost a beloved member.
Daniel Wright, the contestant who competed on the seventh and eighth seasons of the weight loss competition show, has died, fellow contestants confirmed on social media. Wright was 30 years old.
According to a GoFundMe page first published in December 2017, Wright had been diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia two months earlier and underwent chemotherapy and dozens of blood transfusions as part of his cancer treatment. In December 2018, the leukemia had relapsed.
"Yesterday the world lost a bit of its light," former castmate Danny Cahill wrote on Facebook on Monday.
