She underwent an ileostomy operation in January 1993 to remove a large portion of the third part of her small intestine. This operation dramatically improved her health. In the same year, she won the Manhattan Association of Cabarets & ClubsAward for Outstanding Female Vocalist.
In March 1995, LaMott was diagnosed with uterine cancer, yet she postponed a hysterectomy in order to record "Listen To My Heart," which took only a remarkable two days to complete. The operation revealed that the cancer had metastasized.
Her last public performance was on December 4, 1995, at one of the radio station WQEW's live performances. On that same day, she made her last TV appearance on CNBC's The Charles Grodin Show, singing Moon River. 
On December 13, 1995, Father Steven Harris blessed the union of Nancy to Peter Zapp, a little more than an hour before she died. Nancy LaMott died at 11:40 PM EST, at St. Luke's Roosevelt Hospital in New York City, of uterine cancer.
