Information from the Tina Langness Benefit Auction Event:
“The Tina Langness Benefit Auction is an online auction of generous donations from fellow horsemen, horsewomen, friends and family who want to assist Tina in her battle with breast cancer. All proceeds from the auction will go directly to Tina to help defray the huge medical expenses she will incur over this next year as she undergoes treatment.
The outpouring of support has been overwhelming and awe-inspiring. While Tina has many challenges ahead, all of the encouraging words, good thoughts, prayers, and well wishes will keep her strong! A huge thank you to those of you who have donated items and stallion breedings. Honestly, words cannot express how grateful we are for your kindness.
Now let’s make this auction a huge success so the financial burden is the least of Tina’s worries and she can focus on getting well and back to the show pen!”
Information from the Tina Langness GoFundMe Page:
“Over the years, she has ridden and trained horses through a broken leg, pelvis, ribs, ankle and hand. Never complaining and rarely asking for help.
This November, while doing what she loves – showing horses with her clients in Tulsa, OK Tina received devastating news. Away from her family – Tina was informed by her doctor she has breast cancer. Her extended “horse show” family rallied around her while at Color Breed Congress and helped her through the initial shock of the news. To add on top of this news – two days later Tina’s dad was diagnosed with colon cancer. A lot for one family to endure at the same time.
With looming medical bills and potential lost training time, Tina’s horse show family is reaching out to all friends and family to assist Tina her and husband Dave through this time. Please help us show our love for this very special person.
Donations will be used to help defray medical costs and other expenses related to the treatment process that will last one year.
Any unused donations will be donated to other men or women fighting cancer.”
