Volunteer Spotlight: Tracy (Lape) Oppenheimer

Article originally published on January 16, 2020.

Tracy of Hideaway Hills works part-time for Central Ohio Plastic Surgery, Inc. and is a certified fitness instructor. She has been a volunteer with the Cancer Resource Center since 2013, and recently started volunteering in Guest Services at the River Valley Campus.

Seven years ago, Tracy started a yoga program at FMC for cancer patients, survivors and their support persons. Her desire to help those who are struggling is
a personal mission, as Tracy’s own mother passed away from cancer.

“Volunteering gives me the opportunity to help people live the best life they can in whatever situation they are dealing with. I am always humbled by the strength, courage and positive attitude of the patients I come in contact with. I receive more from them than I could ever give.”

We are always looking for energetic, friendly adults and teens to join our volunteer team. Most of our volunteers serve just one, 4-hour shift per week. Applications are
available at the Information Desks at Fairfield Medical Center and the River Valley Campus or online at To learn more, contact Heidi Reed at 740-687-8109 or

Thank you for all you do, Tracy!
