Who We Are

Officers and Directors

REBECCA KELLER
President and Executive Director

Rebecca Keller is the President and Executive Director and Chair of the Board of Directors of The WunderGlo Foundation. Rebecca was a Commercial Real Estate Appraiser for Chase Bank and had worked in the field for nearly 30 years. Rebecca attended the University of California at Irvine where she studied psychology and economics. By far, her greatest life achievement occurred back in December 1981 when Rebecca proudly became the mother of the future WunderGlo, Gloria Borges. Being Gloria’s mother has always been Rebecca’s most significant and rewarding role in life. Although “ultimate pride” has always been the badge she has worn over the past 30+ years, nothing could have prepared Rebecca for the extreme pride and daily inspiration that WunderGlo brought to the table at her immediate cancer diagnosis in September-2010. As Executive Director, Rebecca is honored and proud to carry on Gloria’s Legacy, is committed to the goals set forth to stomp out colorectal cancer through the Wunder Project, is devoted to the “personal” support of cancer patients and their families, and is determined to continue the development and growth of The Gloria Borges WunderGlo Foundation. Rebecca is a leader who embodies the laser focus of this organization.

STAN COOK
Director

Owner and CFO/President of Barefoot Dreams® Inc., Stan Cook is a businessman and UCLA graduate who continues to expand the company that his beloved wife, Annette Leslie (Seifert) Cook founded and launched in 1994. Annette originally set out to create a precious line of children’s products embracing her design philosophy, a collection that was both elegant and soothing to the senses, seeking out the silkiest washable satins and coziest knits in an array of lovely and reassuring colors. Annette then met and married the love of her life, Stan Cook in 1997. Together, they grew their company and their lives in Malibu, with their sons: Grayson, Chase, and Preston. In 2003, Oprah Winfrey named Barefoot Dreams as one of her “Favorite Things”. With the outstanding success of their first product, the Signature Receiving Blanket, Barefoot Dreams® became a nationally recognized brand, featured in numerous publications and television programs. The Barefoot Dreams® collection today features a variety of soft and luxurious blankets and throws, newborn, toddler and kids wear and chic lounge wear and apparel for adults including sumptuous spa style robes that are featured in 5-Star Resorts and Spas and are top sellers at department and specialty stores. In September of 2009, Stan’s beloved wife, Annette was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer. She began treatment with Dr. Lenz at USC and one year later, fate led Annette to a young 28-year old Stage IV colon cancer patient, named Gloria Borges, the founder of The WunderGlo Foundation. Through their friendship, remarkable bond, and mutual admiration, Gloria and Annette found strength and their mutual respect and support, while enduring the trial by fire of cancer treatment, resulted in a friendship unlike any. To honor her incredible spirit, Gloria chose Annette to be the first recipient of a Cancer Warrior Award at The WunderGlo Foundation’s inaugural Gala in June 2012. When Annette passed away on December 29, 2012, Gloria vowed to keep Annette’s legacy of hope, strength, and courage alive by dedicating The Wunder Project’s moving documentary in her memory, by initiating the Annette Cook Memorial Fund for which 100% of donations will fund the first research platform of the Wunder Project’s groundbreaking approach to the cure, and in September 2013, Gloria took great pride in renaming the Foundation’s annual gala after Annette Cook. In May 2013, through his own significant friendship with Gloria, Stan Cook proudly became a Director of The WunderGlo Foundation. He took it upon himself to dedicate the proceeds from their “Covered in Prayer” Collection, a product line that brings comfort both physically and spiritually, to this organization’s capital campaign: The Wunder Project. As Annette created this line of products while finding her own inspiration in her fight against cancer, Stan’s dedication to give back to a community that supported her was realized. Stan continues to expand the Barefoot Dreams brand by opening their first location in Japan in September of 2015 and by featuring their products at a higher volume through QVC. Stan is dedicated to spotlighting The WunderGlo Foundation in conjunction with the Covered In Prayer Collection and with new inspirational blankets to bring the focused attention to our highly important goals set forth. Stan is proud to serve as a Director of The Gloria Borges WunderGlo Foundation and is committed to assisting in funding The Wunder Project, in our mission to ultimately find the cure for colon cancer in honor of his beloved wife, Annette.
