Her local grandparents are Bob & Karen Habeck and Connie and George Wathier. Tasha has been diagnosed as having Interdigitating Dendritic Cell Sarcoma, very rare with between 100 - 200 ever reported cases. I started my 6 rounds of chemotherapy and is currently done with her 3rd round. Of the couple hundred tumors, they measure the largest 40 tumors after every round of chemo to see if there has been any change. So far, the chemo has shrunk the 2 tumors on her liver. If you would like to donate items for the auction contact Angie Logue - 605-661-8517 or 267-3121, Sandy Hahn - 605-660-2738 or Julie Oien - 605-660-2561.
