LOS ANGELES- Actress Karen Black's long and public battle with cancer has ended with her death, her agent said Thursday.
Black, who was nominated for an Oscar for her role in the 1970 film Five Easy Pieces, was 74.
Black took her fight to overcome her illness to a crowd-funding website earlier this year, raising thousands of dollars to pay for treatments she hoped to get in Europe.
Her husband posted a message to donors Wednesday -- just hours before her death -- explaining that over the last months her "health continued to deteriorate at an alarming pace."
Karen Black was mostly famous for her part in Easy Rider and played in Alfred Hitchcock's last movie Family Plot.
