Meet our hero, Ty!
Ty started his St. Jude journey when he was only 2 years old. Just before his 2nd birthday, his family noticed something odd with his pupils in his photos. They immediately took him to his pediatrician, who then sent him to Children's Hospital. There, he was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma, or cancer of his right eye. Since this form of cancer is so rare, Ty and his family were sent to St. Jude, where they were well taken care of! They treated them like family from the moment they walked in, and though they were forced to remove Ty's right eye, they were able to stop the cancer after 6 months of intense chemo. He has now been in remission for 7 happy years!
Ty is a wonderful advocate for St. Jude, and is always doing his part to help his friends there. Here's what his mom, Sandy, had to say about Ty's fundraising:
"He knows how much the donations help save his friends and him. He just raised over $2,000 by baking! He says that when he grows up he wants to be a baker and bake with all the sick kids at St Jude! He will do anything to help make sure his friends get well. The other thing he enjoys doing is bring toys to all the children to St. Jude for Christmas. St. Jude has made him into the loving and caring kid he is now. They are truly our second family. Ty has become a life long patient for St Jude now and will go there the rest of his life to help them try to find a cure for other kids going through what he went through."
