Jennette, the star of Nickelodeon's Sam & Cat, was especially close to her mom and canceled a hosting gig in New York City after receiving the sad news.

Debra had battled her disease for 17 years. It had gone into remission, but then returned in 2010 and spread into her brain and throughout her body.

We send Jennette and all of Debra's loved ones our very best wishes during this difficult time.
