Tiya is an 11 year old Whitby Wolves hockey player, an exceptional student, a loving sister, niece and friend. She was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma and is currently undergoing treatment at SickKids Hospital. Tiya has taken a challenging situation and moved it to a bright place dedicating herself to others through “Tiya’s Purpose”, a campaign to raise money for the SickKids Foundation. Her charitable goal was $10,000, and within three days she reached $18,000. She then increased her goal to $20,000, and quickly surpassed that milestone. Motivated by her "purpose", Tiya has now set a new goal of $35,000 before she "Rings the Bell." She believes her campaign can give other cancer patients a chance to win the battles they face and let them know they are not on the journey alone. #tiyaspurpose
