LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville cancer patient, who spent years inspiring people worldwide, has died.

According to a post on Jill Brzezinski-Conley's Facebook page, she passed away Tuesday morning with her husband and mother at her side. 

Conley was first diagnosed with breast cancer six and a half years ago. It then spread to her bones and lungs.

In 2014, Conley was part of Norton Healthcare's series "Go Confidently" aimed to inspire women.

She also started a foundation called Jill's Wish, where she raised money to give back to other cancer patients. 

Her mother says a celebration of life will be held in Louisville, though no details have yet been released.
