Wendy Newman in the News: Person of the Year Finalist
This past December, Wendy was chosen to be one of four finalists for Asheville's Person of the Year by WLOS News 13 for her work with Wendy's Cancer Warriors!
"It was such a surprise to be person of the week" says Wendy. "I am so honored to be a nominee for person of the year! There are so many amazing people in our community doing such great things for others. It is a real blessing to be included with these individuals." she continued.
Over six years ago, Wendy began providing free photo shoots to individuals and families battling cancer with the project she calls Wendy's Cancer Warriors.
Wendy says that capturing these moments are just as much a gift to her as it is to the ones she photographs. Being able to help provide beautiful moments in what is often a dark time for many is a humbling honor.
