Actress Rose Siggins has died at the age of 43. Best known for her role as Legless Suzy on FX's "American Horror Story: Freak Show," Siggins died at a Denver hospital Saturday morning.
According to TMZ, Siggins checked into the hospital Monday to undergo surgery for a kidney stone. She reportedly contracted an infection and did not recover.
Siggins' management team has set up a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs and for her two children: Luke, 16, and Shelby, 9.
"I'm sad to report that Rose has passed away this morning around 7:30 a.m.," the page reads. "All funds raised will now be directed to final expenses and the continuing support of her children."
The actress was born with a genetic disorder called sacral agenesis, which caused her legs and feet to be severely deformed. Siggins decided as a child to have both legs amputated above the knee, but she didn't let that stop her from pursuing her dreams.
Siggins' death is the second among the cast members of "American Horror Story: Freak Show." Actor Ben Woolf, who was born with pituitary dwarfism, also died this year, after getting hit by a car.

Woolf, who was only 4 feet 4 inches tall, was crossing a Hollywood street in February when he was hit in the head by a car's side mirror. The actor was immediately rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, but died after suffering a stroke. Woolf played the character Meep on "American Horror Story: Freak Show."
