Names to Know
Tracy received her diagnosis in 2009 while serving in the US Navy. She served 8 years and received an honorable discharge. During her first year in the Navy, she underwent tests at Portsmouth Naval Medical Center which led to her diagnosis of ovarian cancer. She endured three rounds of chemo along with surgery. She is now a survivor who looks onto helping other women learn about the signs and symptoms of this disease. Tracy now works as an IT contractor for the Department of Defense by day and a boxer mom to two boxer dogs at night.
Danielle’s mom passed from Stage 4 ovarian cancer in 2002 at the age of 59. Danielle’s sister, Michelle Leftwich, introduced her to the NOCC. In 2002, after their mom passed, they created a team, Joggin’ for Ginger, in honor of their mom and to share awareness of the symptoms and avenues for treatment, but especially prevention. The main benefit of being involved with the NOCC is the camaraderie with all the survivors and other members but spreading the word about this awful disease.
