About Team Tanner for Head for the Cure
Team Tanner is a group of family and friends in the upstate of South Carolina. We represent and raise money for Head for the Cure, a non-profit organization that Builds Awareness, Raises Funds, and Ignites Hope for those that face brain cancer.
Here's our story:
Bobby Tanner lived his life in the upstate of South Carolina. He was a cowboy - a rancher with the most beautiful hayfields. He was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, a Grade 4 brain tumor in May 2019. After a valiant fight for a year, he lost his battle. He was the head of our family, who loved horses, history, God and his Tanner girls. So many people feel this loss still today - his family, friends, neighbors, and countless members of the team roping community.
Where donations are going:
Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight.
Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.
Each year, over 80,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.
Love from all of us at Team Tanner!
