Imagine Dragons—for Tyler Robinson
Tyler battled a life-threatening staph infection when he was 12 years old, he fought and beat it after 8 surgeries and a month in the ICU. Followed by 6 months of heavy antibiotics and hospital visits. 4 years later, at the age of 16, he was diagnosed with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer that had infected 95% of his bone marrow. After a year and a half of chemo (20 rounds) and 6 weeks of radiation, he was declared cancer-free. No doubt he fought like a champion during his battle with cancer. Just 4 months after being declared cancer-free, at the tender age of 17, he unexpectedly passed away due to complications from 3 large cancerous tumors that had formed in his brain. This video is a memory of the great man that he is.

About Tyler Robinson Foundation
Tyler Robinson Foundation (TRF) helps strengthen families financially and emotionally as they cope with the tragedy of a pediatric cancer diagnosis by providing grants specifically to offset out-of-pocket life expenses. TRF is the nonprofit organization of the GRAMMY Award-winning, multi-platinum selling band Imagine Dragons. TRF meets a critical need in communities across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Each year, one in 285 children are diagnosed with cancer. While many pediatric cancer organizations focus on growing awareness and support for families with the physical and emotional toll of a diagnosis, the huge financial hardship cancer treatment places on families is rarely discussed. More than 85% of every dollar TRF raises goes right to families in need. For more information visit TRF.org.
