Leavittsburg community continues support for teen with cancer

Hundreds of people brought out their historic cars Sunday for a car show to benefit Tanner Noble.

LEAVITTSBURG, Ohio (WYTV) – Hundreds of people brought out their historic cars Sunday for a car show to benefit Tanner Noble.

A cookout was held along with a Chinese auction, while slides and face painting were available for children. The fire department also came out to support.

Noble is 16 years old and has medullary thyroid cancer. Even though Noble couldn’t stay for the entire car show, his parents said he still enjoyed the day and liked what he saw.

“I think today he was not feeling well, so it was hard to get a read on him, but he will talk about it later and so you know. But when he was riding around with his cousin Dylan looking at the cars, there was a big smile on his face, so I know he had a good time,” explained Noble’s parents, Demetra and Bob.

Noble will continue to get treatments to control his illness.

The Leavittsburg community shaved their heads or donated at least eight inches of hair back in February during a “Shave for the Brave” event to help pay for medical expenses.

On February 21, Noble was able to sit and watch a basketball game in his honor.
