Model of Courage: Tracie Benjamin

Tracie-Benjamin

Tracie made a splash all over the internet and national TV last year after her boyfriend proposed on live television from the Susan G. Komen walk in Portland, Oregon. That video clip went viral and she and Ryan appeared on Portland’s local news, the front page of Yahoo! and The Rachel Ray Show. She updates us on her health and what project she’s been working on.

GIVE US AN UPDATE ON YOUR HEALTH

I am now on Tamoxifen for 10 years! I finished chemo last October and began Tamoxifen last December.

WHAT IS YOUR BEST PRESCRIPTION?

Exercise daily! Even a 30 minute walk will make you feel better. Avoid hills as getting winded happens frequently! Not to mention, it will keep the weight off. Being so inactive with so many medications can make you gain weight and losing it after is not easy! Stay ahead of the game.

TELL US SOMETHING AWESOME.

I was chosen to be a Model of Courage for Ford Warriors in Pink! Me and 19 others from all over the country, serve as spokesmodels for the Warriors in Pink program. By sharing our story and saving lives, we are able to give back and make an impact!
