When Wendy Chioji died on October 7th, my Facebook feed was literally taken over by people who knew her and wanted to share their pictures and stories about her. Wendy was the news anchor and reporter at WESH, the Hearst NBC affiliate in Orlando, and that’s where our paths crossed. Family, friends, co-workers, other cancer survivors, people who climbed mountains with her and others who were inspired by her strength, her spirit and her composure, share their thoughts here about how Wendy made their lives brighter.
