On October 4, 2007, Ty Louis Campbell came into this world and lives were changed forever. His parents never knew such profound love. Then, on August 11, 2010, their lives were changed forever again. A mass was found at the base of his skull, pressing against his brainstem, and Ty was later diagnosed with a rhabdoid tumor, which is a very rare and aggressive cancer specific to pediatrics. People started calling him "SuperTy" because he loved superheroes, and because he showed such strength throughout his treatment. He passed away at-home in his parents’ arms on October 17, 2012.
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.
The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation is a nonprofit organization, certified 501(c)(3), that funds innovative research and clinical trials specifically geared toward the treatment of various childhood cancers (including brain and spinal cord tumors). Our organization seeks less toxic, more effective treatments that are specifically designed for children fighting cancer. Our ultimate mission is to help fund the intelligence and technology that will uncover new ways to cure children with cancer.
