    Default DJ AM's Sister Dies After Battle With Colon Cancer

    DJ AM's older sister Lara Long -- the woman who created the DJ AM Memorial Fund -- passed away last week after a battle with an extremely rare form of colon cancer ... TMZ has confirmed.



    TMZ spoke with Jenni Weinman, a rep for the estate and Lara's family -- who tells us, "It is with unbearable sadness that I can confirm that Lara Long, the sister to DJ AM passed away late Monday night, May 9th after a fierce four month battle with an extremely rare colon cancer."

    Weinman continues, "She was just two months shy of turning 41. Lara was responsible for keeping the memory of her brother alive with the creation of the DJ AM Memorial Fund. She was the driving force behind his eBay shoe sale as well as his record sales, working tirelessly to make sure he would not be forgotten.

    "Lara was an amazing woman, with a huge personality, a heart of gold and an incredible laugh. There are no words to explain how she will be missed. We ask that you please respect the privacy of the family at this most devastating of times.

    I dont know anything about the family but I can't imagine how hard it would be to lose two children.

    Wow. No idea of their parents are alive but, if they are, it must be unbearable.

    Sad for the family.
    When your daughter plays "House," she pretends to be an annoying doctor with a pill-addiction and a limp.

    I know his father was a drug addict and died when AM was a teen from AIDS, I don't know if their mother is still alive or if there are more siblings.

    Heartbreaking

    greysfang is right, their father died of AIDS when Adam was younger, and he and his sister were the only 2 children...I believe their mother is still alive.


    So sad.
    RIP
