ABOUT TRACY HIBBARD KASPRZAK
The Tracy Hibbard Kasprzak Cancer Treatment Center will be dedicated in loving memory to the life of Tracy Hibbard Kasprazak , who lived her life with kindness, generosity, good humor and grace.
Tracy was born March 8, 1962, the daughter of the late Gary M. Hibbard and Jane Hibbard Merrill. She graduated from Foxcroft Academy in the class of 1980 and went on to receive her Registered Nursing degree from Eastern Maine Community College in 1995. Tracy continued working in the Nursing field in the Bangor area until she returned to her hometown in 1998 to work alongside her mother and sister at the family owned business, the Hibbard Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
Tracy was first diagnosed with colon cancer at the age of 37. She vowed at the time never to give up and to fight for a cure. She underwent chemo and radiation therapy, major surgery, along with various experimental treatments throughout the United States searching for a cure. During her 15 year battle with cancer, Tracy was sustained by her devoted husband Jamie Kasprzak and their three children, Aliza Kasprzak Gerrish, Alexander Kasprzak, and Joshua Kasprzak. During this time she realized the importance of having private and comfortable treatment near family, friends, and a supportive community.
Tracy Hibbard Kasprzak died March 25, 2014 surrounded by her loving family.
The hope of Tracy’s family, who contributed significant seed funding to build the center, is that the Cancer Treatment Center be a lasting legacy of Tracy’s life.
