Tracey is a Certified Mastectomy Fitter with over 500 hours of specialized training completed. She is one of the few mastectomy fitters in the area, so she regularly volunteers to help with fittings at the Dorcy Cancer Center, located in the St. Mary-Corwin Medical Center in Pueblo.
Tracey also realized when working with her clients that there was another important need for these women, and she was inspired to create a solution. During fittings, many women shared with Tracey that they could not afford to pay the insurance co-payments to receive the prosthesis and bras that they needed. Tracey then created the Rosa Fund, named in honor of a beloved client, to help women in this situation.
Tracey also participates in Colorado Springs' annual Cowgirls and Cocktails, which is usually held in the summer. Cowgirls and Cocktails is a COlorado Springs volunteer committee and grassroots effort that raises funds to help those facing breast cancer. This organization uses the collected funds to provide people in the community with transportation, meals, wigs, camisoles not covered by insurance, mammograms and much more. The organization is under the umbrella of Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Foundation.
This volunteer-led organization dedicates hundreds of hours each year to their fund raising event Cowgirls & Cocktails. Through ticket sales, vendor booths, live auctions, and generous sponsors, this organization has raised over $500,000 to help women in the Colorado Springs area.
"I had such an amazing experience with Tracey and the staff at Tracey’s boutique. I was treated with care and patience the entire appointment. Tracey really knows how to make someone feel comfortable for a fitting. It was a hard enough experience to go through and I really appreciate the warm experience. Thank you!!!"
