Wendy Holdener's brother died in the presence of the family

Her brother Kevin was diagnosed with a complex and rare form of cancer when he was 20.

“The cancer thwarted Kevin’s dream of having his own skiing career.

“But Kevin impressed us with his will to survive and his love of life, he bravely stood up to the disease and was able to gain a few more valuable years of life from it,” the statement continues.

After a 14-year battle with the disease, Kevin died on Thursday.

“Now, unfortunately, his superpowers have diminished.

In the presence of his family, Kevin began his final journey after a long illness that he endured with dignity.

We miss him a lot now.

Kevin's death breaks our hearts and leaves a void in our family and community that will never be filled.

We are incredibly sad.

We ask you to remember Kevin fondly – ​​and to give us time.”

Wendy Holdener was skiing with her brother just a few days ago

Just a few days ago, Wendy Holdener posted on Instagram that she and her brother were skiing with their wife Carmen.

The Swiss woman wrote: “Ohh, I missed that.

Freeskiing at home is always cool.

With less pain in my ankle it was a lot of fun!” Holdener then followed up with the hashtags QualityTime and Family Ski Day.

It is unclear exactly when the recordings came from.

However, the Olympic champion broke her ankle in December, which explains the sentence “It was a lot of fun with less pain in her ankle.”

Looking back, the best thing for Holdener was that she was able to spend time with her brother again... (
