My name is Traci Gibson. At the age of 31, I was diagnosed with stage 3b breast cancer. As a wife and mother of 3 boys, I had no idea of the changes I would go through in the years to come.

At first, the diagnosis brought feelings of devastation and grief, pure sorrow. Soon after came the anger and defiance that I was in no way going to succumb to this awful disease.

My children, ages 6, 4, and 5 months needed me too much, and my husband wasn't about to let go either. Our fight began.

As time went on, I developed a sense of gratitude, appreciation and overwhelming love, as my family, friends, and community came together to support my husband and I while I went through countless different cycles of chemotherapy and radiation. I was so blessed to have people coming and going, helping us with day care, meals, bills, whatever I needed, and even things I didn't even know I needed! My family, friends and community changed our lives forever.

It is from all of this love and support that I grew this "Hope" inside of me. A "Hope" to help others. To show my children what others have shown me.

Traci's Hope is a not-for-profit fund I set up to help Men and Women who are going through breast cancer in our area. We pay for many different services that insurance companies don't pay for. Sometimes it is gas cards, or day care. Sometimes it is house cleaning, or mortgage payments. While fighting this disease, the needs could be endless, and nobody should have to do it alone. Traci's Hope is here to make sure everyone gets the support I was so blessed with.

Seven years later, we are still fighting the fight. I still have the support I started out with, and thank God for them every day. In the end, I only hope for a cure for all cancers and there is no need for Traci's Hope. With this, we will all have the feeling of peace.

Thank you for your support of Traci's Hope, and helping to help others in need.



God bless,

Traci Gibson
