Wendy Damonte is the evening news anchor and health reporter for the CBS affiliate in Reno, Nevada. In 2011, she turned the cameras on her own family and chronicled her mother’s battle with breast cancer. Her mom lost that battle. Wendy lost her best friend. But through her research, Wendy discovered her mom didn’t die from breast cancer; she died because she had Dense-Breast Tissue, and her yearly mammogram never picked up the 4 tumors growing in her left breast. Through her involvement with Each One Tell One,™ public speaking engagements and with the Dangerous Boobs Tour™, Wendy is now working tirelessly to inform women about Dense-Breast Tissue. She believes a senseless death only remains senseless if the survivors do nothing to promote change. Wendy’s work is her mom’s legacy.
Wendy is an award winning journalist. She earned the Edward R. Morrow Award for the documentary that she produced during the last year of her mother’s life, My Mom’s Story.
Wendy has also been nominated for an Emmy Award over seven times.
She was also invited to be a speaker for the prestigious TEDx talks series which features speakers from all over the world who have a compelling message to convey.
We invite you to watch Wendy’s presentations and ask that you share them with your
friends and loved ones so that her message may continue to save lives.
