Saultonline is saddened to learn of the death of Tracy Dinelle. Her tireless work to elevate the issue of Cancer patients receiving treatment at Sault Area Hospital, by supporting those patients through Tracy’s Dream Foundation will never be forgotten. Tracy’s Dream Foundation will live on as a testament to her grace and courage. Tracy…. you will be missed!

In a June 18th, 2016 Facebook Post, Tracy shared the following:

The first fifteen days of June have been busy with 12 patients accessing Tracy’s Dream so far. A total of 48 parking tokens and 4 monthly parking passes have been provided to cancer patients. Tracy Dinelle is very pleased when people access the Tracy’s Dream fund. Tracy wants Cancer Patients to know Tracy’s Dream is here for you and please don’t be afraid to access it.

Thanks Dennis and Tracy

Tracy’s request is that everyday we love and cherish each other and do something nice for someone everyday, life is short, love each other and always smile for this will make my journey a happy one, love Tracy!



  1. My deepest condolences to her family and friends. She was truly an incredible woman.???? My thoughts and prayers to everyone. Carla Particelli-My dear friend from high school-I am truly so sorry, I did not realize that Tracy was your sister. You 2 had such a beautiful bond and relationship???? xoxo Luv ya Carla!!! ❣?

  2. It is literally a crime that cancer patients should even have to pay for parking. That notion is disgusting and the hospital CEO should feel humiliated by it.

  3. She was a wonderful lady, all heart. I had a chance to interview her when she first started up “Tracy’s Dream” and she made quite an impression on me.
