The families of Tracy Harvey hope to raise money and put a smile on her face as she battles her fight with stage 4 brain cancer.

Tracy Harvey is the mother of Zachary (16), Kaytlyn (15), Kyla (13) and the wife of David Harvey.  For 16+ years Tracy has been devoted to David and the children.  She has been the loving mother, cook, housekeeper and chauffer in addition to working as a library assistant and attending junior college.

 

On October 15, 2012 Tracy was diagnosed with brain cancer.  She has undergone surgery in which about 90% of one tumor in her brain was removed.  Another tumor was known to be inoperable prior to the surgery.  She has seizures because of the tumors and surgery but, thankfully, medication has reduced their severity and frequency.  Tracy must now be transported 50 miles round trip per day, five days per week, for radiation treatments.  She is also receiving chemotherapy.  Since the surgery Tracy has limited use of her left leg, hand and arm which makes it necessary for her to be assisted in much of her movement such as standing, walking, transferring from chair to bed, etc.  David is currently on leave without pay from his job so he can care for Tracy and the children and transport Tracy to the cancer treatment center and other medical appointments. 

                                                

Through this, Tracy’s concerns have not been for herself but for David and that Zachary, Kaytlyn and Kyla are taken care of.  (David is diabetic; Zach is high-functioning autistic.)   Due to previous medical expenses and the current expenses due to Tracy’s illness, the family has little money and will soon be unable to cover their basic living expenses.  In addition, their two vehicles both need major repairs.  The family needs $50,000 to replace one of the vehicles and to help with immediate medical and daily living expenses.

 

With deepest thanks and appreciation,

The Famiy and Friends of Tracy Harvey
