Thank you to those of you who have reached out to offer us your good wishes.
Tanner is an amazing young man who has maintained a positive attitude through the nightmare of being diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and through all the sickness he has endured while undergoing some of the most gruelling and aggressive chemotherapy that anyone could have experienced.
This last week, we have found that the reporters interview for hours and then condense the information down to one or two minutes and you never know what they are going to actually report. When asked who inspires him to keep fighting while going through all these treatments, Tanner said that he thinks every day of the battle that his cousin Kelson fought with cancer and that it helps him to be stronger.
He also thinks of his cousin Beth and the battle she has fought with her Moyamoya and is so grateful she was able to come home for Christmas and spend some time with us these holidays.
While in Arkansas, Tanner and I have had many long conversations and I can tell you, he thinks of the battles that Kelson and Beth fought with their diseases and they both inspire him to be as strong as he can when facing a future with Multiple Myeloma.
As he told the reporter yesterday, he did get what he wanted for Christmas; he is in full remission and was able to come home and spend time with the family and friends that he loves.
