Wurtzel was determined to have the metastatic bosom disease, coming about because of the BRCA hereditary transformation. 

 

Wurtzel turned into a backer for BRCA testing after her analysis, writing in a 2015 article for The Times, "I DID not realize I have the BRCA transformation. I didn't realize I would almost certainly get bosom malignant growth when I was as yet youthful when the malady is a wild creature. I got it quickly and I acted quick, however, I probably turned away: By the hour of my twofold mastectomy, the malignant growth had spread to five lymph hubs.

Wurtzel proceeded to express, "As per the PET output, I am malignant growth free. I am relieved. Be that as it may, disease plays to find the stowaway in wunderkind ways. It is the radiance of soil at the base of the dustbin that never gets hurled."

Numerous superstars, scholars, and writers are paying their tributes online to Wurtzel, who burst away for a crude, confession booth style of a collection of memoirs.

Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Ronan Farrow posted a photograph of the Wurtzel and himself on Instagram, expressing, "Lizzie began at Yale Law mid-vocation as I was beginning youthful. We were the two nonconformists and she was benevolent and liberal and occupied spaces throughout my life that may have generally been desolate with her glow and humor and peculiar voice. She gave a great deal to a ton of us. I miss her."


Farrow's mom, on-screen character Mia Farrow, paid her sympathies on Twitter, calling Wurtzel "a companion to our family."
