The Radiation team treats patients with all different types of cancers, so it makes sense that they wouldn’t limit their awareness efforts to just one month. Tracy uses both her personal Facebook page and word of mouth to let all her coworkers know which days they should wear a particular color.

Every day I am inspired by my courageous patients and the exciting progress we make in breast cancer research. I know the work we do will push the field forward. But to do this work, I had to give up a lot of my hobbies and previous pastimes. Believe it or not, I used to play Rock & Roll.
