Tracy Maxwell      

Founder of Solo Survivors, Cancer Survivor, Author & Speaker

Prior to founding HazingPrevention.Org, Tracy Maxwell was the executive director of CAMPUSPEAK, the nation’s premier agency for educational speakers and programs of interest to college students. Maxwell is a survivor. Diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2006, she underwent surgery, chemo, and other mainstream treatments and had a clean bill of health for 4 years before doctors discovered new masses. Through, now, four recurrences, she has turned to other ways to deal with cancer, including diet, emotional well-being, spiritual growth, and alternative therapies.

She started writing her blog, “A Single Cell,” to mark her one year the anniversary of her diagnosis and published a book based on her blog, Being Single, With Cancer: A Solo Survivor’s Guide to Life, Love, Health & Happiness. Maxwell also founded Solo Survivors, which provides support for single cancer survivors by making connections, providing coaching, leading retreats, workshops and adventures.

Maxwell holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Western Kentucky University and a master’s in organizational communication from the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater. She served in a consulting role as Greek solutions coordinator for the National Interfraternity and Panhellenic Conferences, then as coordinator of Greek Life and community service at the University of Wisconsin – Whitewater before joining CAMPUSPEAK.
