Wendy Walk had the opportunity to meet many of the scientists, doctors and research staff who have benefited from Wendy Walk’s grants over the years. We were so excited to how much progress is being made to combat sarcoma and inspired by the number of people that are dedicating their life’s work to eradicating this cancer. We got to hear from medical professionals all over the world who are developing new technologies and treatments for sarcomas. For more information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On September 20th people from all over the country came out to show their support for Wendy Walk! Hikers took a beautiful loop in Park City, spinners got their Soul Cycle on in San Francisco and the Greek system at the University of Miami had a special relay day just for Wendy Walk. These events raised over $30,000 for research. Click here and here to see more pics from the day and click HERE to watch an interview with co-founders Ali and Jackie.

My mother, Barbara, lost her valiant battle with sarcoma on June 30, 2015. It was short and long all at the same time. My mother was a fighter and did well, for a while but the beast took over.
