Rose Siggins, the actress who played Legless Suzi in American Horror Story: Freak Show, died Saturday, Dec. 12, at the age of 43.

According to TMZ, Siggins checked into a Denver hospital on Monday for a kidney stone surgery. During her stay, she reportedly contracted an infection that spread throughout her body, and died on Saturday.

The actress — who was born with sacral agenesis, a spinal deformation that limits use of the legs — previously opened up about her condition.

“Getting around is slower these days,” she told the Huffington Post back in 2012. “A lot of people with disabilities feel that life owes them something, and I was raised in a way that no one owes you a dime. The world doesn’t owe you anything. My personal opinion is, get up and go for it.”

A GoFundMe account has been set up for her family.
