Another Triumph - Ty is FIVE

 
By the time I finish writing this post, it will be Ty's birthday.  Sorry, cancer, he did it again.  SuperTy continues to beat the odds.  We all know that Ty wasn't supposed to be here, but he is.  On this day, five years ago, our little fighter was born and he is still with us - fighting hard.

TY IS BORN!! (4 weeks old)

Perfection.  My heart exploded with love on this day.  Burst wide open.  And now I spend my sleepless nights filling virtual page after virtual page to try and express that love and just how much it hurts to watch our baby boy fight this fight. 

He was our first born, so naturally we took tons of pictures.  Thank God for that.  We cherish each and every one.  When a child is sick like this, every birthday, every holiday, every "first" is that much more meaningful.  Over the past two years, Lou and I have celebrated every birthday thinking, "this may be his last, so let's make sure it's great!"  Ty had cancer when he turned three, when he turned four, and when he turned five.  So far we have celebrated two "last Christmases" with Ty. Imagine living like that.  Every holiday is a bittersweet celebration and you don't know whether to laugh or cry.  We try to always laugh (even if it sounds more like a crazy, uncontrollable cackle). 

TY IS ONE!!

TY IS TWO!!
TY IS THREE!!

TY IS FOUR!!

Ty's journey has been so difficult.  It was so hard to look back on all the photos tonight, but I needed to see them, to relive each birthday celebration.  Did you know he had a pinata at his party last year?  I didn't remember that until I watched the video.  It was totally awesome.  There he was, with half a head of hair after all that radiation, standing with my scarf over his eyes and swinging a stick!!  Of course I had to support him as he stood, but he was standing nonetheless!  Last year at this time, Ty was doing so well.  I didn't remember just how well until I relished in the photographs.  He was SO HAPPY.  I'm sure I will spend the rest of my life finding myself thumbing through page after page of photos, or watching video after video into the wee hours of the night just like I did tonight.  It is hard and it is sad, but once I start looking at them I just can't stop because it is also a sweet reminder of what happiness looked like.  I feel it all over again through those pictures and videos and I feel so blessed.

Lou and I are just so proud of Ty.  We watch him on the couch and we imagine how sad he must be, but then Daddy reads him a book about Little Pea, and how little pea doesn't want to eat his candy for dinner (because that's what you have to eat for dinner when you're a pea) and Ty gives him this...

Smile of the day for Daddy
He's the best good boy in the whole wide world, for sure.  Today was a tough day because he had increasing headaches, but for a kid so sick this boy doesn't stop fighting.  He refuses to fall into a good sleep all day long.  I see how tired his poor body is and I try to tell him that he needs to just rest more, but he won't listen.  This has always been his personality.  He even stopped napping at 2 years old because he never wants to miss a thing.  Like I always say, Ty loves life.

Not to dampen the happy mood with regard to Ty's birthday, but Lou and I bought Ty a casket today, online, and his suit came in.  Not the kind of birthday "presents" any parent should have to buy.  We are all still praying that we'll never have to use them.  Those would be the best unused presents in the world. The best money we ever spent. 

Speaking of presents.  Instead of presents, we ask that you do the following for Ty on his birthday:
  • Talk about Ty.  Share his story.  Tell the world that it is his birthday.  That HE DID IT AGAIN!
  • Give your kids a piggy back ride today and when they ask "one more time!" - give them another one
  • Let them play with play-doh, glitter, fingerpaint and all things messy
  • Let your kids have a bubble bath and give them "five more minutes" to play in them
  • Light a candle for Ty tonight
  • Pray for his full physical recovery.  If you are not the praying type, please send positive thoughts for Ty's healing
  • Make a donation to the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation (a 501(c)(3) dedicated to funding pediatric cancer research) or support my friends who are running the upcoming 10K on Ty's behalf in two weeks by donating to https://rally.org/superty
  • Send us your stories and your pictures of how Ty has inspired you to have more fun with your kids. We love them, especially the ones of children jumping in muddy puddles! Post them to his facebook or email us at tylouiscampbell@gmail.com
Happy Birthday to Ty!!  Goodnight and thank you so much for your love, prayers and positivity.

    2. My little cousin went to daycare with your little Ty! I have been reading your blog everyday now, talking about Ty to friends and parents, but most of all praying. I am praying so hard that you never ever have to use that suit or coffin for Ty. He doesnt deserve to suffer, and neither do you and your husband. I pray for Gavin too. I pray that he will understand the love you have for him through all this pain. Happy 5th birthday to your little miraculous son Ty. Im praying for healing and recovery for Ty, as well as you and your husband. May God give you strength, and continue to keep Ty fighting the good fight. Im praying for the pain in your hearts and minds. Here is my favorite acronym. HOPE-Hang on pain ends! Praying that Ty smiles a whole lot today. Happy happy birthday you strong, handsome angel. Love, Liz

  17. Your words have touched my very soul. I lost my dad last month after a 2 year battle with liver cancer. My dad lived with myself, my husband, and my two girls. He was 63. I thought I handled the situation pretty well. I am an R.N. and kept Dad at home on hospice. It wasn't until I read your words describing your heart's every ache that I realized I haven't allowed myself to feel.
    I know my journey with my dad differs from yours and Ty's. I am a child who lost a parent. You are a parent fighting to save your child. Same bond different direction. I know how heavy my heart felt at the end. As a mother myself, I can only imagine how you feel.
    I have read through some of your blog as I am new to it. The numerous accounts of childhood cancer is overwhelming. I have been a nurse for 16yrs and have seen it over and over again. My father was a retired R.N. Going down to Sloan was very difficult for him. He would say to me, " I'm not worried about myself, but look at these kids. They should have found a cure by now." There is no rhyme or reason. None of this makes sense. But your grasp of the situation is unbelievable. My father said to me, "I'm not afraid of my destination. I'm afraid of the journey." I promised him his journey would be smoothe and it was. This is Ty's journey. He is the pilot. And with his amazing parents as his co-pilots his journey in life will be exactly as it is suppossed to be. I cherish you words. I won't sweat the small stuff when it comes to my kids.I will enjoy and appreciate each day. And from now on October 4th will have a special meaning to me.The day I let myself feel again. Happy Birthday Ty! Thank You! XOXOXOX

Cindy, as always, it's through tears and uncontrollable sobs that I read your updates.... my God, I am praying so hard that the suit and casket go unused. That God will send us that miracle, and you can donate them, or better yet, smash it like a pinata.
    I hope you and Lou, and Ty and Gavin can feel all the love and positive energy that so many of us are sending you.

  43. Thank you Campbell Family for sharing Ty with us. I am so happy to see that Ty is showing Cancer who is boss today by being here to celebrate his 5th Birthday!!! I am so joyful to get to wish him a happy birthday. I am so freakin mad that he's suffered the way he has these last three years. Then I am so inspired when I see a pic of him smiling and being the little boy he's supposed to be. As long as Ty is here fighting I will continue to pray for that miracle that makes him healthy and whole - that is the miracle he deserves. I am wishing you all a happy day together filled with smiles and laughter - I know it will be tough but I hope that is what is in store. Always in my thoughts and prayers. Way to go SuperTy - you are my hero!

  53. Ty,

    Happy Birthday Super Ty! You are such an incredible little boy and you are loved by so many people all over the world! It is raining today so I am sure Alex is going to be outside jumping in mud puddles! :) Love you!

    Cindy & Lou,

    I read your posts the past few days and I cannot imagine what you are going through. I cannot imagine ordering a suit or casket for one of my children. I swear, I almost threw up. This feeling of naseau came over me when I read about the casket. My heart breaks for both all of you. I still don't think you are going to need to use it. I remember your posts about Christmas, I believe it was 2 years ago and you were preparing then as well. But that incredible little boy wouldn't stop fighting. He is simply amazing.

    I think that Ty's story is going to bring so much awareness to pediatric cancer and the lack of funding for it. Sadly, it may be too late for many children, but your story WILL help change other childrens lives!

    I don't know if you and Lou truly have any idea how your family has affected peoples lives in such a positive way. I went from seeing my kids 2 hours a day if I was lucky to going to football practice, eating dinner together, playing, being home for showers, baths and bedtime. May not sound major to some, but this was a complete life change. I would have never imagained selling my business if it wasn't for your family. Your family taught me that every second is priceless and you never know what tomorrow may bring. God, I missed out on so much time and I will never be able to get it back. Now I am relishing in every moment with my kids! I also have a lot more patience with them. Sadly, I will admit patience is something I have always lacked. I am not as short as I once was. If my little one is running around the house driving me nuts making a mess, I just take a deep breath and think of how you two would give anything for Ty to be able to run around the house making a mess with his toys!

    Your family has made me a better mother. I feel crazy saying that because I love my children more then life itself and I would never wish a child to have a disease like cancer to change my life. I would give my boobies and my hands to save your son, or any child with Cancer.

    I don't know, I still hold out a great hope that Ty will beat the odds. But, I also know that you want your child to be able to be a child! I see him just laying down with that smile on his face and it breaks my heart that he cannot do the things he once was able to do. The things so many people take for granted. . .

    I hope you enjoy your day with Ty on his birthday! I will be sharing his story like always and praying for him all day long. I will also let Alex jump in some mud puddles! Love you Campbell Family!

    Tonight we will fingerpaint with glittery, messy paint. I'm SURE that it's raining today just so we can go jump in some muddy puddles, and then when I throw her in the bath after I'll let her play in there till she shrivels up like a prune. All for Ty. Because he is the most beautiful birthday boy!

  77. Happy 5th Birthday, Sweet Ty! I wish I could find the words that would offer strength and support to you Cindy and Lou. Lou, I read your facebook post last night and the profound love you have for your son was so evident and pure. The aching pain you both are enduring right now is unimaginable. Your sweet boy continues to defy the odds and fights back sleep so he can breath you in as well! Such pure love, it doesn't get any more genuine than this. We will light a candle, say a prayer and continue to offer up our best to you all. I work in a preschool and am praying for rain so we can all run outside and jump in puddles in Ty's honor. My very best to your family,

  81. Happy 5th Birthday Ty! I found your page through Team Jack as I am from Nebraska. I don't know either of these young boys but keep track through Facebook and think of and pray for them often. My heart breaks for you and your family. I don't know what it is like to have a child that is ill and no matter how hard you try you can't fix them or take away the pain. I do know that as a mother, you want to do that for your child and feel helpless when you can't. It makes me smile to know that you have such a positive attitude and understand that you may not be able to take away the pain but you can make them happy just by spending time and doing normal kid things with them. Cancer is such a horrible disease...I lost my dad to a brain tumor when I was 12 years old and even at that age, I did not truly understand. All I knew was that my dad was gone and I missed him very much. I think of him daily and hope that someday there will be a cure for anyone having the disease. Hang in there, be strong for each other and celebrate life. I hope your family has a fantastic day doing everything you can to make this the best birthday for Ty.

I cannot feel your pain but I can hear it in all the words that your mother writes. Your parents are so uplifiting and have given you the best live that you can have and continue to have. Know that you are loved not just by your immediate family but by all families that see you through your parents eyes. We are all praying for you and continue to fight with you.

  93. Wishing Ty a happy 5th birthday and praying for a full physical recovery for this amazing little boy! I have been following your journey for such a long time and I have shared your story with so many friends, family and co-workers. I have gotten used to people asking me “how’s Ty?” and for a good while I was able to share your amazing clean scan news and everyone was always so thrilled. Even with all of the horrible setbacks I never imagined that it would come back. Not Ty, he’s too special, too good. It’s not fair and I feel angry. As the Mom of a four year old boy my heart breaks for your family but I feel your strength and faith in everything that you write and I feel so privileged that you allow all of us into your world. We will be praying for Ty tonight (and every night). God bless your family and know that you have shown a bright light on pediatric cancer and none of us will ever be the same. We are all now tasked with the responsibility to share your story and the stories of all of the children who are affected by this horrible disease and work toward finding new treatments, educating people and ultimately obliterating it from the face of the earth! We love you Super Ty!!!

  94. Happy Birthday Ty !! Wishing you a fun day, as I am sure your mom and dad will make sure of it. You are so blessed to have such wonderful parents who love you so much. Through your mom and dads sharing they have given many people who you do not know a piece of you. We pray for your recovery, we pray for your strength, and that of your parents and family. We also pray that you will be free of pain and suffering and you will always be in the hearts of so many people.... people who will one day meet you down the road of life. If all the people who's lives you have touched could sing to you Happy Birthday I am sure the entire world would hear it. I keep telling all my friends about you and your amazing mom and dad.
    Love you Ty...... and I hope that you have a super day because you are a super special little boy!

  95. Happy Birthday SuperTy! Last night my son, who is 3 and also Ty-yes "just Ty" :) (I'm sure you've heard that many times in your life too), had just gotten ready for bed and brushed his teeth when he asked if he could have a freshly baked chocolate chip cookie-my first thought was no, you just brushed your teeth and it's time for bed and then I thought about you and Ty and I thought, what the hell? Give this kid a yummy chocolate chip cookie! So what if we have to brush his teeth again? So what if he stays up a few more minutes? Let him enjoy life! I hope you know how amazing you, your husband and your son are. You are all an inspiration. You have undoubtedly made me a better mother and I want to thank you for that. You're touching lives all the way over here in Wausau, WI. I've shared your story with many and we will continue to pray for all of you.

  104. Happy birthday tough guy! I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your example, because of you I took the extra 5 min to read just one more bed time story last night, I let my boys blow bubbles in their milk and make a mess out of breakfast this morning, and I took the time to Hide extra good at hide and seek rather than letting them find me right away so I didn't have to play long. Thank you for making me savor the small things in life that I now know are BIG things,

    Yesterday I took my son alec (4yrs) to the DQ. His favorite is a twist baby cone. I never let him get sprinkles because he usually gets them all over the back of the car. Well I thought of you and I let him get sprinkles. From now on, I will always get the sprinkles for him. The more the merrier!! I have you to thank for that!

  120. Dear Super Duper Ty and the rest of the Campbells. Happy bday to Ty-the best Teacher I have ever had. Im 32 with two kids from LI and I think I just learned more from you and your family in the past week than I have in my entire life. You bring so much meaning to the words Love,Cherish,Faith,Believe,Courage and Endurance. Ty you are truly all of these words in the purest form of a human being. The world wants to see you "Bedda" real soon! Living can be so hard sometimes and I haven't seen anyone do it better than Ty. Oh Bollocks there is just so much I want to say to you and your amazing family but so does everyone else. Everyone wants to help out,the LOVE raining down and spilling out is contagious and I feel it.Always praying for you, God hear my prayer and the thousands of others prayers being said every day since Ty has come into the lives of us all.

    I have asked for prayers for Ty on his birthday from all of my classes at school today - (I teach in a Catholic school) - Can't stop thinking of your family - Truly wish I could take some of your perfect little boy's pain from him. Still praying and hoping and praying and keeping hope.

  125. My kids are teenagers and if I told to go play in a mud puddle they'd probably tell me to go jump in a river, which I'm not necessarily adverse to doing in the right circumstances. But not today. This day, I'm going to put on my whitest sneakers and go find some mud and get those sneakers as dirty as I can. When someone asks me why I did that, I'll simply tell them that's in celebration of Ty's birthday and why he is so important. Best wishes to Ty and all his family today and every day.

  129. Happy Birthday, Ty! I told both of my children this morning when they woke up that it was your birthday--and they both wished they could take your pain away so you can enjoy your day. You have really made an impact in our lives and made me realize even more how precious life really is. As my son, who is 6 years old, climbed into bed with us during the night last night, I was so happy to get an extra snuggle with him. When he kicked me in his sleep and woke me up, I thought of your little freckled foot, and just held my son's foot instead of moving it away. I walked home from walking my daughter to school today and was sure to step in each puddle along the way. We will all be saying a prayer for you together tonight. You are a very special little boy who has made a huge impact in this world in the first 5 years of your life! Happy Birthday to you!

  132. Happy birthday, Ty! You are such a strong, vibrant little boy. My little boy asked why I was crying. When I told him he responded that he doesn't want you to be sick. Then he asked if we could go pick up his big brother from school. I can't wait to pick him up so we can all be together and I can hug my precious babies so tight that they can't wait break free. We will continue to send you positive, healing thoughts. I cannot imagine how painful this all is for your parents. I can't seem to control my tears and I've never even met you. Love and blessings to you all.

I believe in miracles and I'm trusting God for one! I can not imagine What you are goingThrough And no mother should have to buy a casket on Her son's birthday! I am so very sorry that this is happening to you and I wish I could do more other than pray and support financially. Just please know that many people out there know about Ty and pray and think about him every day! Hugs for you mama, and kisses to him. Happy birthday Ty!!

  164. Happy Birthday Ty,
    For Ty's birthday today, when my six-year old got off the bus, I was waiting in the car and took him right to the candy store. It is a big candy mansion and it is all decorated for Halloween. Needless to say, he was totally surprised and speechless and asked my why and I told him it was for Ty's 5th birthday. So for Ty's birthday we had Lemond Heads, push pop, tootsie rolls, dum-dums and airheads! And all before dinner.... And I also let my 15-month run around the store like a tornado (not sure how much they enjoyed that) but she had a ball also and it was all in honor of Ty. I bought her a little stuffed animal. I hope Ty can feel all the love coming from all around the world on his 5th birthday. And I hope that I can take my kids back on Halloween for Ty and that he is celebrating also. Sending big hugs and candy kisses to all of you.

    Well, it's raining
    And it's pouring.
    And my old man, well,
    he is snoring.
    Rainy day, stay.

    Well, my brother
    He builds a puzzle.
    On the blue rug
    With lazy bubbles.
    Rainy day, please stay.

    Rain, rain, don't go away.
    The sun can come back
    Another day.
    Rainy day, please stay.

    Well, my mother
    She doesn't bother
    With the dishes
    In the kitchen
    Rainy day, please stay.

    Well, now I am
    3,000 miles from
    A rainy day with
    My dearest loved ones.

    Father's dreaming of the fall.
    Mother covers with the shall.
    Brother's in the yellow hall, painting pictures on the wall.
    I am listening on the floor, to the sounds I used to know.
    Rain is falling to the ground, praying all the hopes
    are found.

    Rain, rain, don't go away.
    the sun can come back,
    Another day.
    Rain, please stay.

  187. [a message from Grace, my 7-yr old daughter]

    Dear Ty,

    I really hope that you feel better. I feel bad for you because you can't walk or play. I hope that you get healed very soon.

    Tonight at 7:00, me and my family said a prayer for you, saying that we hope that you feel better soon. My mom lit a candle for you.

    With love from,
    Grace

  188. Happy Birthday Ty!! You're 5! That's a BIG one! I hope you made a great wish today. My boys, Jack and Ryan lit a birthday candle for you at 7 oclock, and said a prayer to God and asked him to take your cancer away and make you all better and super strong and healthy. (Then Ry, (3yrs) began to sing God Bless America, but replaced "America" with "Ty" lol. My sister and I were talking about the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas today.. remember when all the Whos in Whoville began singing, and coming together and spreading love and joy?? Remember what happened? The Grinch's heart grew 3 SIZES that day! I do believe that all of us hundreds of Whos out here in all the Whovilles of the world just might be able to send enough love and prayers your way, that we will make Ty's cancer SHRINK 10 SIZES TODAY!!!! Happy Birthday sweet boy. And happy Little Brother day to Gavin-- after all, without Ty's birthday, you wouldn't get to be the coolest little brother in town! <3 Love from Judy, Jack and Ryan Conlan.

  190. The sweetest birthday wishes, kisses, and hugs to my "lovey" on his 5th birthday!!! In honor of Ty's birthday my 8yr old son Nathi was allowed to take the longest bath ever!!! Cindy, you taught me how important it is to "let things go", that "5 more minutes Mom, pleeeaaasssee" is no big deal, that taking a walk in the rain IS fun, and beautiful. I have learned so much from you, Lou, and my Ty. His smiles are angelic, as is he. I cannot believe he is still smiling, yet at the same time, yes I can. He is truly amazing, clearly something he has learned from you and Lou.
    As I write this, I just received a text from my 12 yr old son Liam "Mom, can I dye my hair blonde next week, just for fun??? Pleeeaaasssee ..." Before I respond, I find myself thinking , " Cindy would let Ty"!!
    Happy birthday to Ty, I love you all with all my heart.
    Love, Sue
