Cancer survivor becomes champion for research


Bashas’ Family of Stores partners with Banner
Health Foundation and cancer survivor Traci Beagley
to support breast cancer research


Traci Beagley, business owner, wife, and mother of three, was diagnosed in 2018 with an aggressive form of breast cancer. She was referred to Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, where her treatment included five months of chemotherapy and several surgeries. Today, Traci is not only a survivor of breast cancer, she is also a champion in supporting breast cancer research.

This October, Bashas’ Family of Stores has partnered with Banner Health Foundation and Traci to support breast cancer research. This research is life-saving work uncovering new and innovative ways to treat the many different forms of breast cancer. Bashas’ customers can support this important work by purchasing icons in increments of $1 and $5 to hang in their neighborhood stores, or a case of pink ribbon water bottles. A portion of the proceeds will support the life changing work of doctors like Traci’s physician, Dr. Lida Mina, and the care and recovery of patients like Traci.

In order to maximize the impact of the Bashas’ campaign, Traci pledged a gift to Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center and started an online fundraiser where friends, family, and fellow community members can join her in raising awareness and resources to support of the work of breast cancer research. Visit Traci's fundraising page to see her personal video and add your support for Team Traci!
