Hi everyone, it’s not often that I have written blog posts like this. However, a member of our own developer community here in the NY metro area is in need. A number of folks in the community are organizing a benefit dinner for Wendy Friedlander. If you don’t know Wendy, she has been an active member of the developer community, speaking at several user groups and code camps throughout the tri-state area.
More about Wendy from http://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.
Please join us at 7pm on July 7th 2010 for a dinner benefiting Wendy brought to you by the NYC development community. If you can’t make it to dinner on July 7th, you can still contribute to this great cause via a Paypal link that has been set up for Wendy at http://devsforwendy.com.
