Tracy as a Fighter

I am a proud breast cancer survivor. In May of 2022, I was diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer, the same time I filed for office as Anoka County Commissioner.

 

My doctor said a single mastectomy was recommended. I opted for a bilateral mastectomy. It was supposed to be easy, and no chemo or radiation was needed unless surgery detected more. After I filed for office to run for Anoka County Commissioner for the first time, I asked my friends and family to keep my cancer private. I got really lucky and they all did great, but my surgery did affect my campaign. I could not participate in any parades or festivals per doctor's orders. I had to wait until I had recovered from the surgery.

 

Then the phone call came from my surgeon that they found a microspot on one node. That meant radiation, chemotherapy, or both. I had to wait until mid-August for that result. I scored too low for chemotherapy but needed radiation. That was another 6-week ordeal. 

That began at the end of August 2022 and ended in October 2022. That bit into the tail end of my campaign and I did the best I could.

 

It sounds weird, but I didn't mind my radiation appointments. As I wrapped up my two C's, cancer and campaign as I referred to them, my campaign did not prevail but I won my cancer battle. I also ended up the closest race out of all 7 County Commissioner races.

 

I was really happy winning the most important race at that time. I am now ready to win County Commissioner cancer-free this time in 2024. 

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. It is so important to get your mammogram. My journey was actually really good, and when faced with your own mortality, it really puts things in perspective. Don't put it off. Don't delay it. Just do it.
