Jimmy Buffett, the beloved singer-songwriter, passed away at the age of 76.
He passed away at his home in Sag Harbor, Long Island, surrounded by family and friends.
His official website revealed that he died after a four-year battle with Merkel cell carcinoma, a rare form of skin cancer.
Despite his health struggle, Jimmy Buffett continued to perform, with his last show being a surprise appearance in Rhode Island in early July.
Merkel cell carcinoma is known for its rapid growth and potential to spread quickly to other parts of the body.
The disease often appears as a flesh-colored or bluish-red nodule, typically on the face, head, or neck.
Long-term sun exposure and a weakened immune system can increase the risk of developing Merkel cell carcinoma.
Earlier in the year, he had to reschedule a show due to an undisclosed medical condition that led to his hospitalization.
Jimmy Buffett's music and contributions to the entertainment industry have left a lasting legacy, and he will be remembered by fans around the world.
