On June 1, 2010 our two year old, "Little Air Bear," was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) Type M7. After enduring 146 days at Primary Children's Hospital, Erin is now in remission and living a full life at home with our family. Her strong will and constant happy smile is an inspiration to us all. Through our difficult circumstances we found great strength and peace in our Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for checking in on us.

Rally for Tanner

Rally for Tanner
Monday, April 25th
5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Logan Recreation Center

Cache Valley Friends, bring your family to support Tanner’s family at a “tailgate” dinner catered by the Coppermill Restaurant and fabulous benefit fundraiser and pep rally for Tanner Smith, Logan High mascot, Grizzwald, from 2007-2010.

to read about the fundraiser and purchase tickets.

Tanner is the son of Kristi and Robert Smith (Coppermill’s “Chef Bob”). At age 16, Tanner was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and received treatments which put the cancer in remission. Tanner was able to return to Logan High where he continued as Grizzwald the mascot for his junior and senior years. Less than a year after high school graduation, Tanner received the heartbreaking news of a new cancer, AML leukemia, caused by a chemotherapy drug he received for his earlier treatments. Tanner is now 19 and is in the fight of his life—for his life.  Since November, Tanner had endured several rounds of intense chemotherapy and he is still struggling to get his AML in remission.  A bone marrow transplant was scheduled for early April, but has been postponed until his cancer gets in remission.  Please consider coming to support Tanner and his family.
