About Us

Lynn grew up in Glen Rock, NJ and has lived with her husband and children in Wyckoff for 15 years. Lynn was inspired by the bravery of family members and friends who have been affected by breast cancer. The more she learns about this disease, the more determined she is to continue to educate herself and others and support those with this disease and their families. She appreciates all of the generous support and encouragement the organization has received which allows them to continue their mission.

Wende is a lifelong resident of Bergen County, NJ. She is happily married to her husband, Ed, and is a loving mother to her sons William and Ryan, and a big St. Bernard named Phoebe. She joined 074ATE1 because breast cancer runs in her family and too many people she knows from acquaintances to those near and dear to her have been diagnosed with this disease. Wende is hoping that her part in 074ATE1 will help make women aware to get yearly mammograms and also extend support to those who have been already diagnosed.
