We are heartbroken that our friend and colleague Wendy Chioji has passed away after a valiant battle with cancer. Wendy was an inspiration to all who knew her and to the countless others who knew of her. Her story, shared for years in her candid and always uplifting blog, was a rare insight into the toll taken by this insidious disease and the power of the human spirit to overcome. Wendy was truly one of a kind. We were blessed by her friendship and constantly inspired by her example. She didn't lose her battle. She simply ran out of time.
