I was inspired by a little boy who I never got to meet, Ty Louis Campbell. Ty passed away from pediatric brain cancer in 2012.
Ty loved blue lollipops. They could always bring a smile to his face despite the horrible treatment he was going through. As a child myself, it was easy for me to connect to the joy that blue lollipops brought him.
After Ty passed away, I remember having this feeling of “I need to do something” to continue my connection with Ty... something different than simply raising money for pediatric cancer research...something that would truly represent Ty, not the cancer he had, but the joy he found in life. I couldn’t just stand by without taking action. My mind kept wandering back to his blue smile.
