Wendy watch: a grueling week at Cedars Sinai

Got a nice note from Wendy Wayne, the former First Five chairwoman who's waging a knock-down battle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Wendy is spending the week at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles for four straight days of chemotherapy. Each session is 12 hours long, enough to turn anyone sour, but this is Wendy. She emailed me after Day One typically upbeat, saying "... it has been a very pleasant experience, thus far. A bit surreal. Taking each day as it comes." The real reason for her email was not to update me on the chemo, but to put in a plug for a young college grad who's looking for work. That's so Wendy, working the network for others even as she has her own worries. Send your thoughts southward to Wendy and her family.
