Ty Campbell would have turned 16-years-old on October 4. Instead of taking him to get his first driver’s permit, his memory inspires us to drive toward changing outcomes for children with cancer in the future.
The road we chose is a long one, with many roadblocks, but we believe that our mission to fund innovative research is the only path toward driving real change for children.
Learning to drive is just another milestone in life that Ty was robbed of, but at TLC we are reaching different kinds of milestones in his memory. Those milestones are in the research we fund to improve survival rates and reduce long-term side effects for children in treatment for cancer. Thanks to our donors, volunteers, board members, event teams, and dedicated staff, we have traveled far and fast, and we will keep driving as far as this road takes us until we find more cures for kids.
