Tanner Linn, a 6th grader in Aledo, TX, has recently been diagnosed with localized bone cancer in his shoulder. Tanner will have chemo for 3 months then surgery to remove the cancerous cyst. After the surgery Tanner will have 7 more months of chemo. Tanner's family has no insurance.

Local Boer goat breeder Laurie Sheridan donated one of her young purebred does, Never Idle Star, as a raffle item for the Tanner Linn Medical Fund. The raffle brought in $2,235.00 for the medical fund. In addition to the raffle various groups got together to raise money for Tanner's medical bills and to help out with the family's day to day needs. Events included a golf tournament, a rummage sale, t-shirt sales, several car washes, etc. Over $30,000.00 was raised on Saturday alone.

Ms. Sheridan said, "Congratulations to Tracy and Beverly Kiehl of 4 Kids Boer Goat Ranch,, on having the winning ticket in the raffle! Thank you so much for your generosity in re-donating Star to be sold in the Breeder's Bonanza sale on June 25th in Sherman, Texas. Whoever purchases Star at the sale will be asked to write a check directly to the Tanner Linn Medical Fund".

Tracy Kiehl sweetened the pot with "The sale of Star at the Breeder's Bonanza sale includes a free breeding to 4KIDS 'BUTTMASTER'. He has all the points for ennoblement and all the inspections. We are waiting on ABGA to process his ennoblement".

Laurie added, "Tanner is a wonderful young man. I don't think he will ever realize how many lives he has touched".
