Tracey Sherwood has been working in the transportation industry for 20 years, creating and implementing Health, Safety, and Security policies and procedures. In 2008 Tracey met Marty and they were married in 2012.
In November 2013, Marty was diagnosed with Neuroendocrine Cancer of the left lung, stomach, and liver. Tracey and Marty had never heard about NET cancer, and to their surprise, the treatment options were very limited. Tracey took it upon herself to get educated on NET cancer and treatments, within and outside of Canada.
Tracey and Marty also joined the Atlantic Canada NET Patient Support Group which was led by Annette Jonah at the time. One of the first things they did to get involved, was holding a fundraiser at their campground. From that fundraiser, they were able to branch out to hold a night of music and food at a local restaurant in Moncton.
Tracey truly believes in giving back to the community. From 2012 to 2019, Tracey was a board member of Convoy for Hope – an annual fundraiser in the Moncton area that raises funds for Breast, Colon, Lung, and Prostate Cancer.
In 2018, Tracey took on the role of Atlantic Canada NET Patient Support Group Leader and held a successful NET Patient Education Day. For the past 2 years, Tracey held numerous virtual Atlantic Canada NET Patient Support Group meetings and spends hours supporting new NET patients, by providing diagnosis and treatment information.
