Send Tyler and Jake to watch Purdue

Even during his latest fight against Cancer, Tyler's love for the Purdue Football Team has remained strong.  

From camping out in front of the stadium to be the first student into the Homecoming game (, to being named "honorary team captain" during the Hammer Down Cancer game (
to traveling to Iowa to join Purdue fans in waving to the kids at Children's Hospital from the field(

On December 27th, the Boilermakers face the Arizona Wildcats in the Foster Farms Bowl in Santa Clara, California.   Tyler has his next big surgery just two weeks before that (on December 13th) and it would be an amazing treat to be able to send Tyler (and his childhood friend, Jake, who will travel to help care for him) to the game. 

The money raised will pay for airfare, lodging, ground transportation, and meals while they are there.
