Tracy Landino of East Haven was a three-time cancer survivor before she passed away on Sept. 15. She worked to raise more than $58,000 for the American Cancer Society while fighting for her own life. Her passion was the “House of Hope” Relay for Life Team and she worked to spread the word of early detection. Not only did she raise money for the fight against cancer to help her family, friends, and neighbors live healthier lives, but she spread the word of eating well, exercising, and going for regular checkups. Tracy had recently put her story into book form in the hopes of inspiring others who are fighting the fight against
cancer and their families and loved ones.
“To our friend Tracy, whose passion for a cause while fighting her own courageous battle gives us all strength to take action to support causes we believe in to help make the world a better place. We will be forever grateful.” – Beacon Awards Committee
