Wendy is originally from Los Angeles. She is excited to join Bags of Fun and make a positive impact on the children they serve. She has had a lot of personal loss due to cancer and she is happy to help make a difference.
With a background in pediatric nursing I have seen firsthand what a child and their family goes through when diagnosed with a life threatening condition. This became a reality for our family when our niece Gabby was diagnosed with cancer at age 5. Her determination and kind, giving spirit spilled over into her wish to bring a Bag of Fun to every child fighting a battle. It is our wish to bring Bags of Fun to the Omaha area and continue spreading the joy and love that Gabby would have wanted. It is in her spirit that we bring happiness wrapped up in a backpack to those children going through a really tough time in a world where just being a kid and playing is their job! It is with great honor that we are able to bring this foundation to the Omaha area and are extremely grateful for the opportunity to provide joy to children living with a life threatening illness.
