Tanner Strong

Update:  07/31/19

As of 5:58 am, Tanner has gained his wings.  Throughout his journey, Tanner stayed strong and continued to fight until the very end.  He was an inspiration to many.   Any financial assistance to help with funeral expenses would be greatly appreciated. 

The family wants to thank everyone for the prayers and continued support.

We would like to share the story of our friend and coworker, Angie Harr's son, Tanner. 

 In August of 2017, 17-year-old Tanner Harr was getting ready to start his junior year at Chesapeake High School when he was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in his knee.  Osteosarcoma is a rare type of bone cancer that most often occurs in children and teens.   Scans showed the tumor had not metastasized, but doctors advised it was aggressive and they came up with an aggressive treatment plan.  

 Over the next nine months, he endured multiple chemo treatments, a surgery to remove the tumor, followed by more chemo.  It was a grueling nine months for Tanner and his family, but in May of 2018, scans came back clear.   He was cancer free.  

 For the next few months, Tanner enjoyed his summer getting back in his regular routine, but three months later during his first check up, results showed the cancer was in his lungs and lymph nodes.

He has resumed chemo and future tests will determine the next treatment plans.  

Despite the seriousness of his condition, Tanner has always shown immense strength and courage.  He had to miss a year of school and give up his true passion, basketball, but this wonderful young man has persevered.     His sweet, easy-going personality is something to admire.    He has been a true inspiration to his family and friends.

Because Angie and her husband, Mike have been taking time off work, a Go Fund Me page has been created to help with medical and financial needs during this difficult time.    

If you can donate anything, the Harr family will be forever grateful.  Your support and prayers would mean the world to them.

Thank you for taking the time to read Tanner's story.  Please share/post to spread his story.
