The Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation was created to raise awareness for pediatric cancer and to help fund the progress that is being made in developing more effective, less harmful treatment for a range of high-risk pediatric cancers, especially brain tumors which are both the most common and the most fatal tumors found in children.
At TLC, we support our mission with a three-tiered approach focused on fundraising, volunteerism and charitable merchandising.
(1) The Ty Louis Campbell Foundation is the core of our organization. It is the beneficiary of all fundraising, and the sole source of decision-making around all of our childhood cancer research investments. (2) The Pret*ty Store is a growing brand of awareness jewelry and other assorted charitable merchandise that directly benefit the foundation. (3) The Muddy Puddles Project celebrates kids being kids in honor of those who can’t. This national public awareness and participation campaign was inspired by Ty, who dreamed of jumping in muddy puddles when he was cured of cancer. The core of the project involves getting communities involved in hosting activities that get children outside; letting them dance in the rain, jump in the mud, play in the sand and run among the wildflowers.
