About the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation and SuperTY:
The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation was chosen as the recipient of this years proceeds. This is a local foundation started by an amazing family in honor of their son. Their mission is focused on awareness, funding and research for pediatric Brain cancer. SuperTY (Ty Louis Campbell) is the son of Cindy and Lou Campbell and the brother of Gavin. He was diagnosed with a malignant rhabdoid tumor at the base of his skull in August 2010. He was two years and ten months old. His story is one that is filled with tragedy and triumph. After two years of fighting in October 2010 just days after his 5th Birthday Ty took his last breaths in the arms of his mom and dad.
Cindy, Lou and Gavin despite their pain truly turned the worst thing in their life into something wonderful. In their grief and healing the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation was born. This foundation focuses on awareness, funding and research of pediatric brain cancer. The TLC Foundation is a local nonrprofit that funds innovative research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of the deadliest childhood cancers (including brain and spinal cord tumors). Their organization seeks less toxic, more effective treatments that are specifically designed for children fighting cancer. Their ultimate mission is to help fund the intelligence and technology that will uncover new ways to cure children with cancer.
I would like to honor this year’s hike to Ty and have 100% proceeds go towards the TLC Foundation. I would love and appreciate any and all donations and your help to Hike For SuperTY.
Thank you for your consideration in donating and your continued love and support throughout my journey to recovery.
One step at a time, Keep moving forward!
Much Love, Katie J
