Kelly Preston’s death has led to many people on social media questioning whether her Scientology views affected her medical decisions.
The critics of The Church of Scientology have accused members of rejecting modern medicine. Ex-Scientologists claim the church’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, was critical of the medical profession and had specific policies on it.
Over the weekend, John Travolta announced his 57-year-old wife Kelly had passed away after suffering a two-year battle with breast cancer. He wrote, “It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer. She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. "
He ended, "My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal. All my love, JT”
