about Bobby Tanner.

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 family. He was best friends with his wife Linda, and the best girl dad we could ever ask for.

So many people feel the loss of Bobby still today - his family, friends, neighbors, and countless members of the team roping community.

Denise & Melissa

about us.

In the words of Bobby Tanner when facing his surgery to remove his brain tumor, "we had to go 9 or 90." Yeah, Daddy even had his own way of saying "it's all or nothing." We are Tanner's Hope, essentially the two daughters of Bobby and Linda Tanner who have learned all too well how devastating a brain cancer diagnosis can be. With our mama, our husbands, and countless amazing friends and family members, we've continued the fight against brain cancer, sadly without Daddy by our side - and in that Tanner tradition, we are doing it at the '90' of "9 or 90."

Brain cancer doesn't discriminate and the treatment options buy time, but there is no cure. Additionally, we have found there is a need in our local area and state. Therefore, Tanner's Hope was created. In South Carolina there are only two neuro-oncologists and they are both in Charleston at the Medical University of South Carolina. To get the best care, patients must travel and have huge out of pocket expenses. This is how we want to help and provide hope to others facing this diagnosis.

Tanner’s Hope was one of 277 non-profits in SC to be awarded with a grant from Dabo’s All In Team Foundation for 2023. We thank this wonderful organization for all the wonderful things they do each year for South Carolina - and allowing us to be part of it!

Dabo gave wonderful, encouraging words to the room: “God called you to use your story to help others.”

Colossians 3:23 “Work at everything you do with all your heart. Work as if you were working for the Lord, not for human masters.”
