Background on WunderGlo:

On September 19, 2010, 28 year old Gloria Borges was diagnosed with Stage IV Colon Cancer. She started a blog, www.WunderGlo.com, to track her “cancer-killing adventures” as she planned to “thoroughly embarrass” the deadly disease with medical treatment, exercise, diet, acupuncture, meditation, and -- above all -- a positive, tenacious attitude. During her journey, she barreled through 13 rounds of chemo and 2 surgeries (the first, a routine surgery to remove the tumor in her colon, the second, an 11-hour radical surgery to rid her of all the cancer in her body), and is now in remission. Her story has touched many, as her blog has over 25,000 unique visitors, 120,000 page views, and has been read in over 80 countries.

Sensing a deep need to give back to her new community, a community she calls the “cancer warriors,” Gloria has embarked on this fundraising effort. The proceeds of this tournament and silent auction will go to the D.C.-based advocacy group Fight Colorectal Cancer and the USC Center for Molecular Pathways and Drug Discovery, which administers clinical trials for a groundbreaking stem-cell drug and is led by her oncologist, the world-renowned Dr. Heinz-Josef Lenz of USC Norris Cancer Center.
