Wendy Knecht Obituary, Death – Wendy Knecht has died. In November of 2022, Wendy received the news that she had cancer. On July 9, 2023, she passed away in a calm and serene manner as a result of complications from chemotherapy. Our Bumblebee family has suffered a tragedy with the passing of Ms. Wendy Knecht, who worked as a library assistant at AES. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Knecht family during this difficult time.
She raised her daughter, Harlow, who was 13 years old, on her own. She was a single mother. Raise some cash for her family so they can pay for her burial and whatever medical costs she incurred, and let’s all be there for each other. Your thoughts and prayers are requested for Harlow, Holly, and Keith. In December 2014, Knecht, a writer and advocate for healthcare in Studio City, was given the news that she carries the BRCA2 gene mutation. This mutation has been associated with an increased risk of developing breast and ovarian cancers.
The former flight attendant for Pan Am made the decision to lower her chances of developing breast cancer by having a preventative double mastectomy. Her mother had passed away from breast cancer. Knecht, who is now 65 years old, experienced nerve damage and ongoing discomfort as a result of the procedure. It also resulted in a lawsuit for medical negligence, two complaints to the Medical Board of California, and a push for legislation that would require physicians to disclose to patients whether or not they had accepted compensation from the manufacturers of pharmaceuticals or medical devices.
