BENEFITING: No Stomach For Cancer

EVENT: 2016 No Stomach For Cancer Walk

EVENT DATE: Nov 05, 2016

Amy Huang

THE STORY:

Wendy Huang Oberg was diagnosed in February 2016 with Stage III Stomach Cancer. She fought 7 long and hard months and was determined to beat it so that she could see her 5 year old son, Hunter, and 1.5 year old daughter, Hannah, grow up. However, the cancer was too aggressive and despite receiving more chemo than most people could endure, at the young age of 38 she passed away on October 8, 2016. Wendy was adored by friends, family and even strangers because of her positive attitude  and bubbly personality. Even throughout her battle, she had a smile on her face and fought until the end. The family held a beautiful service on October 22nd for all loved ones to attend and I am certain she felt the love from us all. I miss her so much and love her to the moon and back. She may not be physically here, but she is always watching over the family. 

The goal of this fundraiser is to raise awareness of this cancer. Stomach cancer does not run in my family but we found out that it is prevalent in Asians. In fact, it is normal in many Asian countries to have annual endoscopies. Regardless of ethnicity, stomach cancer is a terrible disease and I want people to be aware and take any measures to screen for it. I saw my sister's appearance, body, functionality and spirit change drastically, and it is not something I would want anyone else to endure. Please share this story and honor my dear sister.
