Breast cancer battling Angelina Jolie`s aunt slips into coma

London: Angelina Jolie`s aunt is in a coma dying of cancer, just two weeks after the Hollywood star has revealed how her family was cursed by the disease.

Debbie Martin, 61, is the `unsung heroine` behind the scenes of Jolie`s decision to have a double mastectomy, reported Daily Mirror.

Husband Ronald, who has been by Martin`s hospital bed since she collapsed at home on Wednesday, said, "She had a seizure and we took her into the hospital. They have turned off the life?-support and her family is all here holding her hand. This is the love of my life."

"She`s in a coma. It`s breast cancer but I think it spread everywhere," said Martin`s brother-in-law Rick.
