About Wendy…Wendy Carol Lipman was born December 18, 1970 and passed away January 2, 1971. She died from complications of cystic fibrosis. Back then, there weren’t many treatments for cystic fibrosis. Thanks to events like A Wish for Wendy, donations are leading to treatments and are moving us even closer to a cure. A Wish for Wendy is done in memory of my sister and our wish for Wendy is that people with cystic fibrosis no longer have to struggle with this disease. Wendy’s memory will some day lead to a cure.
