Charlie and Tammy Smith

Enjoy the outdoors and help one of Coupeville’s favorite Wolf Moms.

As Tammy Smith fights breast cancer, daughters Ciara and Ema have launched a number of fundraisers to help their mom.

Their primary goal has been to give her a professionally crafted wig — using their own hair — as her body battles through chemotherapy.

A GoFundMe — https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-tamtam-save-the-tatas?qid=1a74bcca7e65e30bde2db1bb489b0aae — has received 50 donations.

And now the Smith sisters are holding a Color Run 5K Saturday, Apr. 30.

The event will start at 9 AM at Coupeville’s Living Hope Foursquare Church (105 NW Broadway).

Kids, dogs, scooters, and strollers are welcome, and suggested donations are $10 for individuals and $25 for a group of four.

To sign up, email your names to run4tamtam@gmail.com.

Charlie and Tammy Smith

One of the kindest of all Wolf moms could use some help from her massive fan club.

Tammy Smith, who brightened up Coupeville considerably during her time cheering for her daughters, is battling cancer for a second time.

After defeating breast cancer once before, the irrepressible one is back at it, squaring off with a triple negative breast cancer diagnosis.

Smith, who now lives in Arizona with husband Charlie — a pretty big ray of sunshine himself — faces a 24-week working relationship with chemo treatments.

“Mom is currently in good spirits and is as active as ever,” said daughter Ema.

“She’s hiking, and walking, and getting lots of rest, but we know that the road may get harder as treatments go by.

“It is very possible that mom will start to lose her hair at any point.”

With that in mind, Ema and older sister Ciara plan to donate their hair and have a Seattle company, Compassionate Creations, craft a wig for Tammy.

The sisters are hopeful the many communities positively affected by their mom will help support their effort.

They plan to stage a 5K in Coupeville, and have launched a GoFundMe, with the proceeds going directly to cover the cost of the personalized wig, and aid with medical bills.

“We want to express on behalf of our family how thankful we are for the love, prayers, and support we have already received from so many of you,” Ema Smith said.

“Once the wig is made and delivered you can expect a fashion show from Tam Tam herself!

“We hope you’ll join us in supporting our mom in whatever way you can right now, and know that we will be grateful for any and all support given.”
