|Ty Campbell |
(October 4, 2007 - October 17, 2012)
Ty captured the hearts of many beyond his hometown of Pawling, NY, thanks to his mom Cindy’s widely ready blog that provided an honest, emotional narrative of their battle with the disease. One of Cindy’s most publicized posts was a beautiful,yet heart wrenching account of Ty’s final moments and the time her husband Lou and she spent with Ty after he passed away.
Ty’s story is a solemn reminder of why we must remain committed to finding better treatments and cures for all children battling this horrible disease. Ty’s courage and bravery inspires and motivates us on a daily basis to fulfill our mission to raise as much funds as possible for pediatric cancer research projects. As Ty himself said when asked what he was going to do to the cancer, “Beat that up,” we fully intend to do just that. We send our heartfelt condolences to the Campbell family and we won’t stop fighting – until there’s a cure.
