Popular entertainment lawyer and president/founder of the Jamaica Association of Female Artistes Sandra Alcott is dead.
Alcott died Thursday at the University Hospital after a battle with breast cancer.
She is also known for her work in the legalize ganja campaign as well as pioneering poetry detailing the struggles and exploitation of women in the entertainment industry.
In speaking about the lawyer to RJR news dancehall artiste Queen Ifrica said Alcott's passing has left a void.
“Sandra Alcott, Sanjaya, it was a pleasure to have met her through Tony Rebel. My fondest memory of Sandra is when we started an organization called ‘Committee for Community’ where we went in to volatile communities and take out the rival factions and she was a part of that…she helped families who couldn’t otherwise afford lawyers, she was one of those who gave of themselves,” Queen Ifrica said.
Queen Ifrica also urged women to get early testing for breast cancer.

“It was something that really got to my heart and I want to say to females…who might have an idea of what breast cancer is, if you are at the age where you need to be checked up just go get yourself checked and make sure your health is intact because you only have one body. We just want to say rest in peace Sandra, we love you and the work continues,” she said.
