Allain died at home surrounded by family a day prior, per an online obituary.
Though an official cause of death was not revealed, Schneider had previously opened up about his wife’s struggles with breast cancer during a prior Fox & Friends appearance.
At the time, Allain detailed that she was “diagnosed with stage 4 HER2 negative cancer,” with Schneider adding, “She was three years into a five-year shelf life.”
Allain chose to battle her cancer with a holistic approach, telling Fox & Friends, “I went into like a speed course of reading what path I was going to take.
“I decided to do keto for cancer, CBD oil, and then ground myself in minerals.
“I really got into a really rigid regime.”
