May is the month that we promote awareness about Melanoma by posting about taking care of your skin, wearing sunscreen, and getting skin checks! It’s also when we honor our dear Wendy who passed away in May of 2008 by wearing her favorite color…orange.
If you’d like to help spread awareness and take the #orangeforwendy challenge, post something about Melanoma or post something orange EVERY DAY in the month of MAY! We will RT and help create the buzzzzz! Use the following hashtags:

Side Note: While Jordin, Jodi, and PJ were shooting “One Step At a Time” in LA, they got the call to come home. Wendy was declining quickly. They drove as fast as they could to get to her in AZ. When they got there, they ordered pizza, helped with a treatment and played with her hair. They knew she didn’t have long and knew she would get a kick out of this video and showed it to her. (watch until the very end:) She saw it before anyone…she was the 1st. It was the last smiles they shared together. She died that night….
We all love and miss Wendy and know that she is smiling down on us from Heaven. We will keep her memory alive and honor her wishes. She was a beautiful soul and because of her we are all better people. She’s got to be cracking up at all the #orangeforwendy posts! Keep ’em coming!
❤ R.I.P. Wen
