THROUGHOUT WENDI’S LIFE AND CAREER SHE HAS ALWAYS GIVEN SELFLESSLY TO EVERYONE ELSE.
Brave. Fierce. Warrior. Viva Babe Wendi is a fighter.
Captain Wendi is the Fire Captain of the Rancho Mirage, CA fire department. She’s been a Firefighter with Cal Fire since 1995 and has spent the last 12 years as an Engineer serving another local community. She’s now fighting the biggest battle of her life as she learned just over a year ago, she has one of the most aggressive, fastest-growing breast cancers in existence. Her nominator, Guadalupe shares, “throughout Wendi’s life and career she has always given selflessly to everyone else. My sissy Sara (also a firefighter) passed away from cancer in January 2017. I am forever broken, but Wendi has helped me emotionally so much with her cancer strength.” Not only has Wendi spent most of her life serving her community as a firefighter, but she’s also made a tremendous impact through her volunteerism. She’s volunteered with the homeless for a number of years and also counsels peers with PTSD and stress-related issues. Plus, once she’s beaten cancer, she plans to spread the word about awareness and prevention within her firefighter community.
You got this, Wendi! Your strength and determination in the face of adversity inspire us all! Keep smiling, keep fighting, and kick some cancer a$$!
