The TLC Foundation helps raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer treatment and research. It was created in honor of a brave young fighter named Ty. At just two years and ten months old, Ty was diagnosed with a rhabdoid tumor, a very rare and aggressive cancer specific to pediatrics. Ty left us at the age of 5 after a long and heroic 2 year battle.
I did not have the pleasure of meeting Ty, or his parents. However, through mutual close friends I have heard many stories of Ty's heroic battles. With great strength shown in the face of these battles, and his love of superheroes, he became known as "SuperTy".
On September 9, 2017, I will be competing in the TYathlon, a sprint triathlon, in hopes of raising awareness and support for the TLC Foundation and its commitment to childhood cancer research.
Ty gave his all for 2 years. In turn, I am going to give the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation my all for about 2 hours to help celebrate the life of a very special superhero, SuperTy. Please help me in achieving my fundraising goals.
