Tracy McCool surprised with kind words from husband, kids on air

CLEVELAND (WJW) – It was a touching moment on FOX 8 News Friday afternoon as we shared Tracy McCool’s secret skill during the 5 p.m. show.

Everyone who took part kept their special talent a secret until they revealed it on the air, but Tracy’s was so secretive that even she didn’t know what it was.

Everyone at FOX 8 agreed that one word to best describe Tracy is “selflessness.”

To Tracy’s surprise, her husband John, who has been battling cancer for years, and their children have recorded videos of themselves explaining how selfless she is.

“She is a wonderful woman, a wonderful sister, a wonderful daughter, a wonderful mother, a wonderful caregiver and I wouldn’t be where I am today without her,” said John.

“Even though my mom is incredibly busy with responsibilities at home, she still has time to support me in doing the things I love. That is selflessness. I love you,’ said Tracy’s daughter Cassidy.

“No matter how busy my mom is, she always comes out with a catcher glove and plays with my catch. Now that is selflessness. I love you, Mom,” her son Carter said.

John was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2018.

“I want to thank all of you, viewers out there, for sending the prayers you are doing to keep me going,” John said.

With watery eyes, Tracy thanked her family and everyone who made this possible. FOX 8’s Gabe Spiegel went on to say that everyone here knows how selfless Tracy really is.

“No one understands the complexity of your life right now and how you do it every day to work because of certain things that happened in your life, even outside of John’s situation. We love you,” Gabe said.

But the surprises didn’t stop there. More members of our FOX 8 family joined them in the studio to bring Tracy bouquets of flowers.

“I couldn’t do the things I do every day and do my job without all of you. Thanks everyone for all your support,” Tracy said.

We at FOX 8 would like to thank Tracy for all she does and will continue to remember her, John and their family in our prayers.
