Clarke spoke about her battle with brain cancer in YouTube videos that she shared on her channel, “Shatanya’s Journey.”

She said on the channel that she was diagnosed with a Myxoid Mesenchymal Tumor in September 2020 after experiencing what she believed to be severe migraines.

She began working for KFDX, which is based in Wichita Falls, as a reporter in 2018, and became a weekend anchor for the station last year. Wichita Falls is about 140 miles northwest of Dallas.

Clarke, an alum of Florida A&M University, co-founded the “Soups and Socks” event to raise money for faith mission in Wichita Falls, according to KFDX. The third edition of the annual event took place in January.
