Kathy Griffin revealed her sister Joyce has passed away after a battle with cancer.

At the end of the video, a cartoon version of Joyce appeared along with the message: “This is where she always wanted to be… & now she’s having a Mai Tai on the beach in heaven.”

The comedian also included a link to support the American Cancer Society in her message.

Just a few months ago, Griffin shaved her head in solidarity with her sister as she fought against the disease.

Griffin’s brother Gary died of esophageal cancer in 2014. Her other brother, Kenny, also died years ago.
