Nicole Hazens passed away as a result of complications from the extremely uncommon brain cancer she was diagnosed with more over two years ago, according to a statement from the Diamondbacks.

Our family wants to express its sincere gratitude to everyone who has shown us love, support, and spontaneous acts of kindness over the past two years and four months. Without the assistance and kindness of our neighborhood, we would not have been able to travel down this road with her. She lost her ability to speak, walk, talk, and lead as a result of glioblastoma, but she never lost her ability to love her children, family, or friends. Although we are lost without her, we shall carry the torch of her unwavering compassion for everyone going forward.

In order to care for his wife and their four children, Mike Hazen took a leave of absence in 2021.
