Their struggle touched so many people. A mother and father from Dearborn Heights both battling cancer. Friends of the family were trying to pay the medical bills and emotionally prepare the couple's three young children. Sadly, both parents have died.
Residents of metro Detroit were praying for a miracle that somehow, someway this beautiful, young couple would win their battles with cancer, but God had other plans.
On Friday, Sam Tanana died. Wednesday morning, his lovely wife, Courtney, was called home, as well.
Sam was suffering from late stage lung and liver cancer. Courtney was diagnosed in August with cancer that attacked both her lungs and bones.
Together, this couple shared a bond that will never be broken and their three precious children are now living proof of that.
So many of our viewers sent their well wishes, prayers and donations to let the family know you care, and for that they are forever grateful. What you have done for them will never be forgotten.
