About Us


Who Was Tammy?
Tammy Wilson was a wonderful wife and mother, beloved friend, and dedicated paramedic who spent her life in service to the people of Guilford County. Tammy passed away at a very young age after a long courageous battle with cancer in February 2006 leaving behind two children, Megan and Collin. After such a long battle with her terminal illness, several of her co-workers and friends saw a need to reach out and help not only her children, but any children of fallen paramedics, in North Carolina.

The Tammy Wilson Foundation
The Tammy Wilson Foundation is a nonprofit organization that evolved in memory and honor of Tammy Wilson. After such a long battle with her terminal illness, several of her co-workers and friends saw a need to reach out and help not only her children, but any children of fallen paramedics, in North Carolina.
