The Janiestrong Foundation donates to The Tyler Robinson Foundation Gala

Posted by Ellen Bordinhao on

The mission of The Tyler Robinson Foundation is to strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of a pediatric cancer diagnosis by offsetting out-of-pocket life expenses. Eleven year-old Tyler was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, yet his zest for life stayed with him to the end. He taught those who know and love him the power of positivity and its ability to extinguish darkness even in the face of adversity. Tyler loved music, which was the catalyst for his relationship with the band Imagine Dragons. One of his favorite lyrics during the time he was battling cancer comes from the song, "It's Time," which says The path to heaven runs through miles of clouded hell. When the band heard about this, they dedicated the song to him at a show-this was the beginning of a long friendship. On September 23, 2022, TRF and Imagine Dragons joined together for the 2022 Rise Up Gala! Together, they raised 3.5 million dollars to help families!
