Hello my Name is Tracey Ann Bailey. On May 30th, 2013 My Life was forever changed. I was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, which is just one of the many struggles I have had to deal with at 28 years old. After losing my mother only a couple of months before, I felt as though I could not take this head on, and I became deeply depressed. I thought I could not mentally or physically put up a good fight, but then I had to think I'm only 28, and I have my whole life a head of me. I have no kids, but I do have a younger brother whom I've taken sole responsibility of after my mom died. I must fight for him, not just for me. So with that I came up with a slogan "Fight Violet Not Violence " and I plan to make t-shirts hats etc #TeamViolet Making the best of what I thought was the worst. .....#MyStory
LoziLu, a national women's filthy 5k festival for all athletic abilities to love, will be coming to Milwaukee, WI on Saturday June 29th!
Exhilarating obstacles, music, mud & amazing after-party. It's all to help kiddos with cancer have a future of fun. It is led by two athletically minded couples from Madison aiming to show the world how fitness is both fun and rewarding. Their romantic relationships are rooted in fitness; the University of Wisconsin Triathlon Team played matchmaker for them both, and that is also where they met Mike McLean, Eric's older brother. As many of you know, Eric had been battling leukemia since 2003 and after 9 difficult years of fighting, Eric sadly passed away last summer. Eric's family founded L.I.F.E., the Leukemia Ironman Fundraiser for Eric - a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to helping other young adults around the country battling cancer like Eric. Lozilu donates a portion of each race towards the L.I.F.E. organization. LoziLu's mission is to 1.) spread happiness, health and fitness throughout the world by leveraging the familial influence of women, and 2.) to support leukemia & lymphoma research to find a cure for blood cancers while helping cancer patients live happier lives.
