Wendy: I was diagnosed three years ago. And now I'm a 3-year survivor, when I was coaching, I found out I had breast cancer and it was shock, just being an athlete, you don’t think you can get things like that. And right now I'm a survivor and try to educate all the younger people about breast cancer. What advice do you have for other women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer? Wendy: Just stay persistent with your doctors if you have questions asked, get to know some survivors that they can talk to you, because there's a lot of things that come up that may catch off you off guard and you’ll be able to cross the boat. But just knowing your body and being able to communicate about what's going on financers. Well, that’s the best I can go. What was the most memorable part of your experience with breast cancer? Wendy: Memorable, is my first race for the cure. It's the first time I actually been really affected by it, I've always come, but it's never really an effect to me. I did it because I wanted to help, you know with the raising money for breast cancer awareness. And so the really affect to me is that was the biggest thought for me.
