Tanner Fights Spinal Cord Tumor – Please Read!

This is something that I don’t generally do as there are so many causes out there on social media in this day and age that its hard to choose which to support but this is something that I feel I must share. Tanner is the brother of a very good friend of mine over in Canada. Not just the general kind of mate you chat with every now and then but a true friend. A friend that been always there to talk to in bad time and who is always pleased for and my family in good times and has since day one supported my work.

I know just how much this family are hurting but still they are all  there doing everything that they can to support Tanner, you couldn’t find a nice family f you tried. So yes I am asking, I am asking every single person to please make a donation to this appeal, it doesn’t mater how small it is everything helps and if you can’t afford to make a small donation then you can still help by just sharing this post.

Thank you personally from me, to everyone than van help by making a donation or sharing .

Tanner went for a self funded MRI in August of 2016, brought on by significant nerve pain and coordination loss. At the point the MRI revealed an intramedullary spinal cord tumor. This meant that the tumor was inside of his spinal cord, as opposed to an extramedullary spinal cord tumor, which attaches to the outside of the spinal cord.

The difference is significant as opening up the spinal cord to remove the tumor is extremely risky, especially in the thoracic region where Tanner is afflicted. Upon further examination it was determined that the tumor was very large, spanning 11.5cm from C7 to T7. As his motor function and quality of life degraded rapidly, he decided surgical removal of the tumour was the only logical course of action.

At this point in time Tanner has undergone 2 surgeries (July 12 when half the tumour was removed and July 26 when they successfully removed the rest of he tumor). Tanner is waiting for a referral to the Cross Cancer Clinic as well as an assessment to get into Glenrose Rehabilitation Center. If you know Tanner you will also know that reaching out like this is a last resort.

 

Whatever you are able to give please know that any amount helps to ease the financial burden of Tanner’s battle. THANK YOU for all your prayers and compassion. With kindest regards and appreciation we can’t express how much your support means to us as a family.

The Islamic & Diversity Centre was setup in 2002, in an attempt to break down some of the many myths and misconceptions about Islam and Muslims, this was done for both non-Muslims and Muslims and they do some amazing work that provides benefit to people of all faiths.

You can find out more about the IDC by visiting the website http://idcnortheast.org or subscribing to the YouTube Channel https://www.youtube.com/user/IslamicDiversity or by following onTwitter at https://twitter.com/islam_diversity

Stu Armstrong was quoted as saying “I first met Abu-tayeb two years ago after an introduction from a friend from Radio Northumberland, Paul Green, and went onto Fast FM as a guest, I found out from Any-tayeb just what amazing work the IDC carry out to challenge and break down misconceptions and work to help people of all faith’s.”

“I am looking forward to being a guest on the show again on Monday and hope that I can help to break some misconceptions and barriers down. After the disgusting atrocities of this week in Manchester I am sick and tied of hearing and reading peoples uneducated views on Muslims, so this is something important to me. NOT all Muslims are terrorists, in fact the 99.99% of Muslims are just normal everyday down to each people that are just as disgusted as anyone about the Manchester attacks and I think the people need to remember that.”

Look out early next week for a video interview with current Northern Area Champion, Hartlepool’s Daniel Cope.

Cope who is set to defend his area title strap on April 22nd against Ferryhill’s Billy Snaith will be interviewed by Stu Armstrong, talking all things boxing, he up and coming title defence and of course Billy Snaith.

Snaith who was interviewed by ‘Stu Armstrong Media’ on film two weeks ago, seems to be no fan of former friend and training partner Cope with taunts such as “Yes you have your fans but your fans can’t fight for you, I have my fans but I can fight”, that have been picked up by the press.

The interview described on social media by Cope as an embarrassment has certainly set the tone for the April clash. If you haven’t seen the Snaith interview yet, then see below to view.
