Tanner Gangl

Tanner was diagnosed with Embryonal Carcinoma on Tuesday, January 11.  This started when he noticed a lump at the base of his neck the previous Friday.  After a few doctor appointments and scans, he was admitted into Children's Hospital Minneapolis Saturday evening.  The doctors were initially leaning towards Lymphoma, but after the biopsy, we found out it was a germ cell tumor.

Tanner has always been very healthy and active.  Even leading up to identifying the lump, he had no other signs of what was brewing from within.  

Tanner is a hard worker and very driven.  I know he is going to tackle this head-on and then will continue his dream of playing college football.  He is currently a junior at Spectrum High School in Elk River, MN.

His parents, Jane and Scott, will be providing updates to this site.  If you want to hear from Tanner himself, follow him on Twitter at @TannerGangl.
