The Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation is a community-driven nonprofit organization and our fundraising activities are executed by a team of dedicated volunteers. The majority of our minimal operational costs are covered by the proceeds from merchandise sales (i.e. SuperTy t-shirts and PRET*TY bracelets) in order to maintain that your donation will directly support innovative cancer research.
We feel a tremendous responsibility toward making sure our fundraising efforts benefit the most promising, innovative studies geared toward treating the most aggressive childhood cancers (including brain, sarcoma and neuroblastoma). The clock is ticking, and we need to make a difference for all of the children currently battling cancer, as well as future pediatric patients. In addition to a dedicated team of researchers and medical advisors who advise us on investments, we have partnered with powerful institutions who are making tremendous strides toward better treatment options for childhood cancer.
Solving Kids' Cancer (SKC) is TLC’s largest charity partner. Since 2007, SKC has funded novel clinical research for children diagnosed with high-risk tumors. TLC chooses to collaborate with Solving Kid’s Cancer because they are a like-minded organization with an impeccable track record of responsible spending including 25 research projects created, 15 new treatments delivered to children with cancer, and $4.4 million awarded in grants in only 7 years.
Since 2005, the St. Baldrick’s Foundation has awarded more than $103 million to support lifesaving research, making the Foundation the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. St. Baldrick’s funds are granted to some of the most brilliant childhood cancer research experts in the world and to younger professionals who will be the experts of tomorrow. Funds awarded also enable hundreds of local institutions to participate in national pediatric cancer clinical trials, which may be a child’s best hope for a cure. As partner with St. Baldrick’s, the TLC Foundation has agreed to co-fund a minimum of 1-2 research projects annually. This enables our institution to leverage their world-renowned Review and Advisory Board, helping us to make the most informed investment decisions. For more details, visit http://bit.ly/16nJI8H
The Children’s Brain Tumor Project brings hope to patients and families who confront devastating brain tumor diagnoses. Because so many different types of brain tumors are considered rare, such tumors simply do not get the funding that researchers need to find a cure. The Weill Cornell Children's Brain Tumor Project will offer physicians the unprecedented ability to quickly analyze the genomic data of a tumor, allowing for personalized tumor therapy and affording new hope to patients. With that individual genetic information in hand, researchers hope to identify alternative delivery methods and drugs that specifically target each young patient's tumor. We are proud to help fund such an innovative initiative.
