About Wendy’s Wish Inc.

Wendy's Wish Inc. was created because I was extremely sick and now I'm not. I feel compelled to pay it forward. I had chronic lymphocytic leukemia, it rather quickly went through Richter's Transformation.  I went through extensive treatment including chemotherapy, monoclonal antibodies, total body radiation, and finally a bone marrow transplant. I am currently in remission. I was very blessed to have the support of family, friends, and an amazing treatment team. I was frightened and frustrated by the lack of information and the grim prognosis of what I did find. other than my doctors, no one I knew had ever heard of Richters Transformation.  My wish is to create awareness of Richter's Transformation, to offer peer support,  to provide accurate information about this disease, to offer financial assistance to patients diagnosed with Richters Transformation, to raise funding for research, and most importantly to inspire hope.

about richter's transformation

One of the most serious complications of Chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) is the progression or transformation to a more aggressive form of non-hodgkin's lymphoma known as diffuse large b-cell lymphoma, also called Richter's Syndrome/Transformation. This type of transformation is rare and the prognosis can have a difficult outcome. CLL occurs primarily in middle-aged and elderly adults, with increasing frequency in successive decades of life. For patients with progressing CLL, treatment with conventional doses of chemotherapy is not curable, but selected patients treated with allogeneic stem cell transplantation have gone on to a disease-free life.
