The Wendy Walk
The Wendy Walk was founded by Ali, Matt and Jackie Landes to raise funds and awareness for Liposarcoma, a rare cancer that their mom, Wendy, suffered from. Throughout her battle with Liposarcoma, Wendy underwent four 13 hour surgeries, eight chemotherapy treatments, and two rounds of radiation in an attempt to halt the cancer. Sadly, there is no cure for Liposarcoma, and Wendy passed away in March of 2013. Wendy Walk is the only organization funding research to make sure that no one with Liposarcoma will have to suffer like this again. The walks take place every year in NYC, Miami, LA and Park City and have raised over $2 million to date.
