BENEFITING: TY LOUIS CAMPBELL FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013
In September of 2012 I started reading a blog a mother kept to document her son's fight with pediatric cancer. The first day I started reading the words of just pure raw emotion, my life was forever changed. I became a better person, a better mom and was completely inspired by a little boy named Ty Louis Campbell that fought so valiantly for over 2 years! I never met this precious boy, but I do know his smile could light up the world, his eyes told a story bigger than any story ever told and his courage and strength was that of an army! For that he was known as SuperTy! He touched so many lives, many of those he's never known, he was a real life angel and on October 17th, just 13 days after his 5th birthday, God gave him his wings, but his story lives on!
I've never been inspired by anyone or anything before like I have been by this little boy and his family. In honor of SuperTy, I am raising funds for the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation by running the Hartford ING Marathon in October.
The Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation was created in his honor to raise awareness for pediatric cancer through his courageous battle, and to help fund the progress that is being made in developing more effective, less harmful treatment for a range of pediatric cancers including brain and spinal tumors.
It is a nonprofit organization, certified 501(c)(3), that funds innovative research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of the deadliest childhood cancers (including brain and spinal cord tumors). The 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.
Please help spread awareness about Pediatric Cancer and sponsor me by donating to help the next Ty Louis Campbell.
