As a lawyer, Wendy brought her heart to her profession by dedicating herself to divorce mediation, insistent that just because a couple divorces they don’t need to be enemies and create a hostile environment for themselves and their children. Wendy’s children have followed her example—bringing their hearts and their incredible love for their mom—to focus on the fight to help cure liposarcoma. Like all advocates, they are passionate—and their commitment to this cause continues. Read More at GoodHousekeeping.com

Liposarcoma Stories: Diane Walter
How are you affected by Liposarcoma? My mother was diagnosed with Liposarcoma 11 years ago and has had 3 reoccurances since. How did the Wendy Walk make you feel? I participated in the New York City walk. It was a great day that helped to bring awareness to a very rare form of cancer that is often overlooked.
