Mariana Marcela Briski (14 September 1965 – 14 August 2014) was an Argentine actress, director, producer, screenwriter, author, and professor. She was known for her roles in It's Not You, It's Me (2004), The Wind (2005), and Salsipuedes (2011). Briski was also known for her television roles in Primicias and Poné a Francella.

Briski was born in Córdoba, Argentina.[1] She was married to Hernán Ventura from 1988 until her death in 2014; the couple had one son, Pedro.[citation needed]

In October 2004, Briski was diagnosed with breast cancer.[2] By 2012, it had metastasised into her lungs.[3] In 2014, Briski died from lung and breast cancer in Buenos Aires, Argentina, aged 48.[4]

Cancer[edit]

In October 2004, following a routine mammogram,[5] she was diagnosed with breast cancer.[6][7] She had a history of breast cancer in her family: her grandmother suffered and healed but died many years later of natural causes.[5] Mariana Briski had to endure two surgeries, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.[5][8]

How do you tell your child that you were sick?
―I told the truth. I think when you know what happens can walk the pain better. A Pedro sat and words for a boy of his age told him I had something in the breast and I had to remove it. He immediately asked me if he was going to spend the same. I said no and also explained about the hair. Luckily there were just a little doll house that he could be taken out and put hair and that helped.
Did you ask for professional help to talk to him?
―Sure, I had professionals who helped me in all areas of my life for the couple, family, everything. I think Pedro took it pretty well. What's more, he's going to an art workshop and recently gave me a sculpture that was me, hat and all. He said, "Lest you forget hat you wear". [Mariana Briski is visibly excited for the first time].
