Tracy DeGraaf is this year's keynote of Celebrating Life 2022 and she promises to deliver an evening of fun, laughs, connection, and community.
Rebellious Magazine said DeGraaf has the “presence of a motivational speaker and the uplifting message of a preacher. Her everyday experiences resonate with fans who can be seen nodding along with punchline after punchline." As a Christian and a breast cancer survivor, DeGraaf uses her platform to inspire women spiritually and motivate them to schedule their breast cancer screenings.
She likes to tell women “I want you to know Jesus, but I don’t want you to meet Him face-to-face just yet.”
DeGraaf pulls material from her experiences as a wife, mother of five sons and middle-aged woman. She is the author of Laugh Anyway Mom and was trained for comedy at The Second City in Chicago. She is happily married to her husband, Ron (a.k.a. Muffin) since 1989 and they live in the Chicago area with their remaining Mini-muffins. She is a member of the Christian Comedy Association and travels nationwide.

We hope to see you at the free Celebrating Life 2022 event on Thursday, October 13th at 2nd Street Station. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. Celebrating Life is a free event PLHS offers to the Watertown community in partnership with the Watertown Breast Cancer Support Group to create an opportunity for breast cancer survivors, women still in their journey, and their loved ones to come together to connect and support each other.
