Tracy Lane Foundation (TLF)

On August 11th, 2013 Tracy Lane lost her life to cervical cancer and she would have turned only 32 on November 12th. Her husband and my good friend, Derek Lane, created the Tracy Lane Foundation in his wife’s name to raise cervical cancer awareness and to promote HPV vaccination among young children and adults. November 12th will serve as TLF day going forward and everyone is encouraged to wear teal to support Derek and the Foundation’s noble cause. Derek eloquently explained recently, “If you have the chance to wear teal, go dancing or offer a toast on her Birthday, please do so because nobody would want you to more than Trace. We all know life must go on, but her Birthday is also TLF Day and because of that, smiles are a must, hard as they might be to muster. Much like her Celebration of Life, she insisted on smiles and levity.” Don’t forget to have your screenings done or to remind a loved one to do so. If we save just one life . . . .
