Tyler Robinson Foundation Mission
The mission of The Tyler Robinson Foundation is to strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of a pediatric cancer diagnosis by offsetting out-of-pocket life expenses. expenses.
The story begins simply in 2011 when 16 year old Tyler Robinson, then in treatment for Rhabdomyosarcoma, connected with Imagine Dragons at a very small concert in Provo, Utah, before Imagine Dragons even signed to a record label. Prior to attending their concert, the band learned of Tyler from a message sent to them by Tyler’s brother. The message was a note to let them know their song “It’s Time” had become Tyler’s anthem during treatments - most specifically the lyric, “The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell.” The band then dedicated their performance that night to Tyler, who was in the audience, and a lasting friendship was born.
Tyler gained his angel wings on March 4, 2013. The following month, Imagine Dragons teamed up with the Robinson Family and the Tyler Robinson Foundation was born. Tyler’s inspiring life and positive example as he fought through several bouts with cancer, forever changed the perspective of the band.
