Meet “Titanium Tanner” Ross

Why Tanner is an #ACHero: Born with neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder, Tanner has undergone numerous spine surgeries and hours of therapy to relieve pain and severe scoliosis caused by the disorder. He stays positive with the support of his family and dog ‘therapists,’ as well as by helping others as a member of the Akron Children’s teen advisory group. He is one of 14 featured hero patients for the Akron Children’s Hospital Akron Marathon on Sept. 23, 2017. Learn more: http://marathon.akronchildrens.org.
