Tim’s memory, love and spirit lives on today through the lives of the people he touched. He set the example that each and every one of us are capable of changing the world locally and globally through living compassionately, demonstrating courage, and caring about others. Even during his courageous battle with Pancreatic Cancer at age 17, Tim lived those virtues. Today those “tisms” continue to inspire his friends and family to keep paying his dream forward.
The core purpose of the TYH Humanitarian Foundation is to continue Tim’s legacy of caring and compassion for others. The Foundation partners with various research entities, humanitarian organizations and civic groups whose own mission reflect the concept of “Team Humanity”. We know we are all part of a bigger world and must work together to make it better.
