Tricia is the wife to Mick whom she has been married to for over 20 years and a wonderful mother to three sons, Jack 19, Ryan 16 and Patrick 14.
She was diagnosed in August 2019 the day before her 48th birthday with stage 2 breast cancer. With further testing she learned she is also BRCA2 positive. After undergoing 4 months of aggressive chemotherapy Tricia underwent a double mastectomy in February and will soon start 6 weeks of radiation and reconstruction surgery. Once she completes this she will go through a hysterectomy just to be on the safe side because of being BRCA 2 positive.
Through all of her treatments she has continued to work and be her kids biggest fan whether it be at a football game, band concert, baseball game, wrestling match or any school event. Tricia has also been a big support to her sister Julie as she continues her 3 year battle with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, the two of them are such amazing fighters and inspirations to everyone they know.
Tricia does everything with a smile and such a positive attitude! Anything she receives from the foundation will help offset any medical bills and any time that she may need to take off from work without pay.
