Santa Cruz Fire Captain Needs Help With Inoperable Stage 4 Brain Cancer
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KION-TV) — The Santa Cruz Fire Department is asking local residents to help give one of their fire captains the same amount of time with his family while fighting stage 4 brain cancer.
Captain Brian Tracy was diagnosed with inoperable stage four brain cancer. Brian and his doctors are working to keep the cancer at its current size. Tarsi has been with the fire department since 2006.
Captain Tracy recently retired from the department after being diagnosed in order to spend as much time as possible with his wife Stephanie and daughter Stella.
Brian Tracy was born and raised in Santa Cruz. He graduated from Harbor High School in 1999 and followed in his father’s footsteps by starting a career as a firefighter for the city of Santa Cruz.
Brian was excellent at his job and quickly rose through the ranks, eventually earning the rank of Fire Captain in 2020. As a member of the fire department, he served his community and the greater state of California with dedication, honor, and professionalism.
Brian had a talent for teaching and willingly gave back to future generations of firefighters by becoming part of the county’s career fire training. This critical shot keeps firefighters at the forefront of their profession by teaching them ever-changing fire strategies and tactics through real fire training.
