Welcome to Kourtney Tankleff's (Lil Tank's) Page

Thank you for visiting. This cause is very dear to our daughter Kourtney, and we appreciate all the support we can get!

On November 21, 2016 Kourtney was a 4.0 student who had dreams, goals, aspirations and looked forward towards the future. Just days before, Kourtney and I (her father) went to Cornell University where Kourtney wanted to attend for their veterinary program, and was told she would be accepted based on her grades and her life experience. However, on November 22, everything changed for Kourtney. She was taking an equine course at college when she was forced to ride a horse she had no experience with throughout the semester which altered her life forever. Kourtney was bucked off (thrown off) the horse within minutes. She was transported to the hospital by ambulance and since that day, she has had to re-learn so many aspects of her life. She was diagnosed with TBI and subsequently diagnosed with CRPS/RSD specifically due to the TBI. She hasn't been able to return to school, drive, etc. She goes to therapies several days a week, and her recovery period could be several more years - the scariest for us, she may never get back to where she was on November 21, 2016.

What happened to Kourtney should not happen to any child, especially a child attending a college class.

Together we can make a difference!

Love & Sincere Thanks,

Laurie & Marty Tankleff AND A HUGE THANKS FROM Kourtney
