In 2012, Twin Cities Live helped Sam Knaeble surprise his girlfriend, Amy, when he proposed to her live on the show. Just three years later, doctors discovered a tumor on Amy’s brain. Despite the news that she would need to undergo a lengthy brain surgery to remove the tumor, Amy and her husband Sam remained hopeful that the tumor was benign and a full recovery was in their future. Unfortunately, their hopes were shattered and Amy was diagnosed with terminal malignant glioblastoma–incurable brain cancer.
Amy was only 38 years old when she was diagnosed, only two years after being married. As newlyweds, Sam and Amy were creating a life together–discussing plans of purchasing their first home and excited to start a family. Even though Amy’s world was shattered the day of the diagnosis, she continues to show resilience, poise, and humor. She is an amazing gift to her friends and family, and she reminds us every day that no one knows what life will bring, so enjoy the moments you have.
