Emma (Luna) Marie Knickman, age 27, passed away on October 19th, 2023 in her home surrounded by her family and held with love, just as she has always wanted.
After 9 relapses Luna became the longest living survivor of Osteosarcoma, a case study of determination, love, and the will to live.
Luna was an exceptional spirit of love, joy, brilliance, and occasional mischief. Doing her best to live, inspire, love and help so many people during her 14+ year long fight with cancer. Getting more out of her life than she ever thought possible, and kept fighting for more, up until the very end.
She will be held forever in our hearts as a fierce lover of life, learning, space science, architecture, Anime, transgender rights, kink, and most of all her brother Bo.
She is survived by her fiancée Skye Hawthorne, father Roy (Ryan) Knickman, mother Debbie (Eric Morris) Knickman, brother Bo (Claire Hamilton) Knickman, grandmothers Eileen Fore and Erika Stephan, Aunt Donna (Elliot) Butler Blut, Uncle Andrew (Sabrina) Stephan, Mark (Patty) Stephan and a number of cousins and friends who loved her dearly.
