Have You Donated to DevsForWendy Yet?

Wednesday, July 7, 2010 3:13 PM

From the www.devsforwendy.com:

Wendy is a 30 year old software agilista from Long Island. She's a strong WPF developer and a firm believer in the agile method of development including pair programming and TDD. Wendy is wife and mother of a beautiful girl named Kaylee who will be 2 in August.

In August of 2009 Wendy learned that she had a rare and agressive pediatric cancer called aveolar rhabdomyosarcoma. Her treatment consists of high dose chemotherapy and radiation. She has had to leave her job, and her husband has been forced into part time work in order to care for their daughter.

I’ve actually never met Wendy personally, although I heard of her through friends that attended her DevTeach talks a few years back and have featured her in past blog posts.

DevsForWendy is the work of “Girl Developer” Sara Chipps, who put together a fantastic charity dinner tonight in NYC. If you’re in NY and can make it out, check the website out for how to buy a ticket. But if you’re not, then you can still donate to help Wendy out. There’s a donate link on the DevsForWendy site also.

Also, stay tuned for our next charity event, DevsForDonaldBelchamsLiver!
