Renee Christiana Wolfman, 55, of North Las Vegas, NV passed away from lung cancer on January 21, 2022 in the comfort of her home .
Renee was suddenly diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in October 2021 after pursuing a lower back surgery. In 2001 Renee was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease that left her unable to continue her career. She went on to appreciate time as a stay at home mother but struggled with various amounts of chronic pain. Renee received additional spine surgeries in 2015 and 2019. After struggling with an increase in lower back/hip pain in 2021 she pursued an additional back surgery. To our dismay, they found a 8cm mass in her left lung and she was referred out for additional imaging. The imaging revealed that the cancer had metastasized across the lungs, in the femur and hip, the pancreas and the adrenal glands. Her beloved husband, Marc Wolfman, took unpredicted time off over the last months to take care of her. Renee very much imagined many more years with her 15 month old granddaughter and loving family. Renee was incredibly strong and completed radiation and her second round of chemo before she passed suddenly on January 21,2022
