"I'm excited to share with you that on Saturday we received the call that a perfect heart was available for our son! He received that heart the next evening. His recovery has been exhausting, but every day he meets more goals--yesterday he took his longest walk out of the room. He has far to go, but is doing well! Thank you, again, for your assistance with my lot rent at the beginning of our journey this spring, so I had one (huge) less thing to worry about during the wait--and recovery."
"Often parents tell us how Tanner’s Team stepped in right when they needed help most. We have made mortgage and rent payments when families were facing tenuous living circumstances, helped them afford food as they faced difficult choices between settling arrearages and eating, and paid for vehicle leases, insurance, or gasoline so they could continue chemotherapy many miles from home."
“Thank you so very much for helping us during this time! It means the world to us. So often, we take all the good people for granted. Then when it is our family in need, going through a through patch, we actually hear about these amazing people and foundations, we realize that people out there actually care and know what we are going through. We cannot thank you enough, from the bottom of our hearts, for helping us. We were lying in bed when I received the email, and we were both blown away when we read that you were taking care of both the rent and the security deposit. It about brought us to tears. So again, thank you, thank you, thank you from our family to yours for your generosity. We appreciate it more than words can express!”
"We would like to thank Tanner's Team for the help we received with our mortgage payment and gas card. This has helped us tremendously and could not have come at a better time."
"Thank you so much for the help. This has been Reece's longest hospital stay and I am a single mother with three children. I only get paid when Reece is home with me, so going three weeks without a paycheck was going to be hard to recover from. My family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts! Your foundation is truly a godsend! Tanner is another angel we pray for every night. Thank you again for all that you do."
"Thank you so much for help with our housing costs! Thank you very much!"
"Our family wanted to express a heartfelt thank you for your financial support and to thank you for your organization's support toward families having to deal with the stress of fighting cancer. With foundations like yours, it eases the stress of having to focus on the financial burdens when families need to focus on the health of their child."
"Thank you so much for helping pay a month’s worth of our car payment and the gift card for food. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"Thank you so much for helping us through this time. We appreciate it so much and look forward to giving back and helping others when we are able."
"Thank you so much for the generous payment towards our May mortgage. We are truly grateful for Tanner's Team and the legacy your foundation has created."
"Thank you so very much for the wonderful getaway.. Everything was fantastic!! Eli enjoyed biking around the resort, sitting out by the lake watching the geese and their babies. We had fun playing ping pong and swimming at the water park. Lunch was fabulous at D Michael B's. This getaway allowed Eli some fun times to get his mind off of his upcoming appointment for scans to see if he continues to beat this horrible monster called Cancer. I am pleased to say that his scans came back good and he continues to win his fight."
"Oh my goodness!!! I am beyond greatfull!! God bless you!!"
"Thank you so much for the generosity and support that you have extended to our family. Freddy loved opening the big box from Tanner's Team. He said, 'Now I have another favorite blankie!" Our family is also grateful for the payment towards our mortgage. We have benefited by letting a few worries go, so that we can really concentrate on Freddy's care and the needs of our family."
"THANK YOU and all of Tanner's Team. I have been working with this family for some time and I cannot tell you what this gift means to them. The family literally sighed upon receiving your email. They will now be able to breathe easier and enjoy the time they have with their beautiful boy. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers as Logan is in the last days of his life here on earth." Sincerely, Amy - social worker
"Thank you very much for the generous donation. We will be reaching out to hopefully find some opportunities to volunteer and help give back to your organization."
"Just a quick note of thanks. We received your care package and mortgage grant. Both so incredibly appreciated. I’m not going to sugar coat it, since Neva was diagnosed with ALL 3 months ago, it’s been extremely hard. Monetary gifts like yours have greatly relieved us of the financial burden. Since finishing up her first round of chemo at Masonic at the U we have transferred to Sanford in Fargo. Logistically it just made a lot more sense. Neva is currently listed as in remission. She has been handling everything that’s been thrown at her with amazing strength. She’s definitely had her downs but her ups are so encouraging. As I’m typing this here you wouldn’t know she was sick but we are about to embark on another 4 week session of treatments. We continue to pray and have belief in our Lord. With organizations like Tanners Team we are going to conquer cancer. Thank you!!"
