I am the youngest of three and only daughter to my parents, Dave & Leslie. Before I was born, my parents were blessed with their first daughter, Wende Jean. In 1976, when Wende was only 3 years old, she died of leukemia leaving behind my parents and my oldest brother, Brett.
I have always felt connected to Wende whether it be through the stories my parents and brother have shared, or through others who knew her and played with her and loved her. It is clear that she brought so much joy to my family and I would give anything to have had a relationship with her.
I am choosing to run in memory of my sister, Wende Jean Henderson. I am choosing to run for the families that are going through what my family did as a result of childhood cancer. Please consider donating to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and help me reach my goal.
