TYLER TRENT CANCER RESEARCH ENDOWMENT
Created in honor of beloved Purdue superfan Tyler Trent will fund cancer research at the Purdue Center for Cancer Research (PCCR). Donations will generously be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Walther Cancer Foundation.
Trent, a 20-year-old Purdue student from Carmel, Indiana, who suffered from a rare form of bone cancer, died Jan. 1 after a five-year battle with the disease. During his time at Purdue, Trent was an eager student, a tireless advocate for giving and an inspiration to many.
