In addition to the heartbreak of losing Tanner, the Lynott's must come up with $5,350 for surgery and hospital stay.  If Tanner ever made you smile, please consider donating!

Tanner's illness came as a shock and took his life in 36 hours at the age of 7.  In an effort to save him Brendan and Stacy opted to have a blood transfusion and overnight surgery under the impression Tanner would live much longer than he did.  During surgery it was discovered that he had 2 1/2 liters of blood in his abdomen and his spleen was covered in tumors and falling apart. The Lynott's planned to bring him home Saturday and wait to find out if it was cancerous or not and then determine what their next options were. Everything happened fast and Stacy and Brendan made all decisions based on Tanner being comfortable and out of pain, though they were led to believe he was coming home the day after surgery.  Saturday morning the Lynott's were preparing for Tanner to come home when they got a sudden phone call that Tanner had complications from the surgery and was taking a turn for the worse.  Within 5 minutes of their arrival, Tanner passed away. We are asking for financial support from anyone who Tanner made smile to help his parents with this financial burden they have been left to figure out.
