Nicole Hazen, the wife of Arizona Diamondbacks general manager Mike Hazen, died on Thursday from brain cancer.
The team announced Nicole Hazen’s death in a message from the Hazen family on Twitter on Thursday morning.
“Nicole lived her life and loved her family with fierceness and devotion. She spent every day in service of others as a mother, wife and educator advocating for goodness,” the statement read in part.

In July 2020, the Hazens learned that Nicole had glioblastoma, an aggressive type of cancer. In June 2021, Mike Hazen announced he’d be taking a “physical leave of absence” in order to be more present with his wife and four children.
