Dr. Phil's sister-in-law Cindi Broaddus has passed away aged 68 after surviving a horrible acid attack 17 years ago.
Cindi was the sister to Phil’s wife, Robin McGraw and passed away on Monday, February 19.
In honour of her sister's death, Robin posted a tribute photo to Instagram with the message: 'I am reposting @branlo35 post….I am so proud of you and Angela and Shelli. We are all heartbroken and will miss her everyday. She was our hero. You 3 all made her life a dream. She lived everyday for her daughters and you always made her the happiest woman ever! I will celebrate her and her strength and her unwavering support for me the rest of my life. I miss her dearly.'
Her death comes after a terrible acid attack by a stranger in 2001 that burned 70 percent of her face which left her having to undergo over 12 surgeries.
Cindi's obituary stated: 'In 2001, Cindi survived a random act of violence when someone threw a jar of sulfuric acid off an overpass. This one act started her journey of courage and the inspiration for her book A Random Act. Spreading her message of courage, she inspired a multitude of people. She was brave until the very end.'
KSWO reported that she was only given a 30 percent chance survival.
Cindi leaves behind three daughters, five grandchildren, one brother and three sisters, including Dr Phil's wife Robin McGraw.
Our thoughts go out to her family and friends during this difficult time.
