For the Love of Lollipops

I've been singing this song about childhood cancer for seven years now.  Seven years of, "go gold... fund research... cure the kids... more than four... give, give, give... please, please, please..."  And, let me tell you, it's exhausting.  I am fatigued.  But I am also obligated to honor Ty and to keep his memory alive by maintaining my promise to him (and to myself) that I will never stop fighting for him and the kids like him.  I am his mom, and this is what mom's do.  This is the only way I know how to continue taking care of him.

What simply amazes me is that there are people who have been on this journey with me every step of the way, and who never left my side after all this time.  Many of whom were complete strangers to me before Ty got sick, and who are now my dearest friends.  In fact, our entire Board of Directors at the Ty Louis Campbell Foundation didn't even know me before Ty got sick, and they volunteer tirelessly in his memory.  I am beyond humbled.

One of the most incredible examples of someone who has turned Ty's tragedy into a vehicle for helping others is Riley and her "Blue Lollipop Project."  She was only nine years old at the time she started on this journey of love and lollipops in Ty's memory, and her commitment has never wavered.  When I think about what my priorities were when I was her age, well... let's just say she is far better than I ever was.  Riley recently entered a contest via Facebook, and her essay will only be considered if we can get enough votes to get her into the top 30 at #MyGivingStory.  We have one week to vote, and we can all vote once per day.  Please take a look at what she wrote about her special mission and help me spread the word about the vote.  She really deserves to be recognized.  I love Riley so much.  I love you all.  Thank you for loving Ty and his blue smiles :)

A BOY NAMED TY
- Riley

Ty loved blue lollipops...

Ty Louis Campbell, a boy I never got to meet, has changed my life.  Ty passed away from an aggressive pediatric brain cancer in 2012 when he was only five years old.  I was only nine years old when I was introduced to Ty’s story, but it immediately grabbed my attention.  Pediatric cancer is severely underfunded and due to this, under-researched.  I find it so unfair that innocent children are being robbed of their childhoods and that the options to save their lives are ones that are harsh, outdated and usually meant for adults.  

I knew that I wanted to do something to help fund pediatric cancer rlesearch while also honoring Ty in the process and that’s how The Blue Lollipop Project was born...

Did I mention Ty LOVED blue lollipops?  Why?  Because to a child they are magical.  It isn’t their delicious taste that holds the magic, but the way that it turns your smile blue.  Your tongue, lips and teeth all turn blue when eating a blue lollipop and that’s where the magic resides.  In honor of TY, I created The Blue Lollipop Project.  For every dollar donated to The Blue Lollipop Project, a blue lollipop is sent to a pediatric cancer warrior and all of the money funds pediatric cancer research through the TLC Foundation (the organization founded by Ty’s family in honor of Ty).  One hundred percent of the money that the TLC Foundation raises goes toward pediatric cancer research.  Through the support they have given me, I have partnered with hospitals throughout the United States, raised thousands of dollars for pediatric cancer research and donated thousands of blue lollipops through The BLue Lollipop Project.   

I continue to work closely with the TLC Foundation to bring blue smiles to kids throughout the country and to best support pediatric cancer research.  I hope to continue my project and support the TLC Foundation for many years to come in order to spread the magic of blue lollipops.  It is so amazing how something so simple can be so uniting and powerful. 


Riley.  You are my second favorite super hero of all time:
1 - SuperTy
2 - SuperRiley :)

How I wish you got to meet him.  He would have hugged you and loved you and laughed out loud at your blue lollipops.  I wish you could have shared a blue smile with our very special boy.  He will always, always be in your heart and watching out for you.  There is a palpable connection between you both, and I find such comfort in that.  I hope you do, too.

LET'S DO THIS! :)

  1. Voted. We need more Rileys in the world. I've no idea how old Riley is now but she is clearly a smart and articulate girl with a great heart who deserves all the support and encouragement we can give her. Good luck!

He did a (Lover spell) for me. 48 hours later, my ((Ex Boyfriend)) came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again.

A friend told my husband I cheated on him and I have never cheated on my husband nor would I ever. He is convinced I am a cheater. we have 2 beautiful kids and all I have ever wanted is a happy family. my kids and my husband truly are my everything. I can not see a future where my husband is not in it. I want to do whatever I can to save my marriage but I feel my husband is already set on the divorce. I know I could have been a better wife to him….a wife he deserves but now I fee like I have realized it too late. I look at my kids and I hate myself for allowing myself to break my family apart. I know my husband is not perfect and he has hurt me tremendously these past 5 years we have been off and on but we made it through for a reason.
