Report: Auburn commit diagnosed with cancer to spend holidays with family
The family of three-star defensive tackle and Auburn commit Tashawn Manning received some positive news just days before Christmas.
Per 247Sports.com’s Keith Niebuhr, Manning, who was diagnosed with acute promyelocytic leukemia three weeks ago, was released from the hospital and is back home. He will be able to spend the holidays in the company of his family barring any setbacks.
In addition, the family’s Go Fund Me account eclipsed the $10,000 mark on Tuesday. As a result, the family has set a new goal for $15,000, per Niebuhr.
Manning, a 6-foot-4, 270-pound senior from Apopka, Fla., was set to enroll at Auburn in January before learning of his diagnosis on Nov. 26. A report by the Sun Sentinel’s Chris Hays indicated he will no longer enroll early.
