Cindy Campbell was a cancer mom blogger on from 2010-2012, during her oldest son's battle with brain cancer. He passed away just days after his fifth birthday, and she has since maintained blogging about child loss, bereavement, and embracing the joys of childhood and parenting. Along with her husband Louis, they founded the Ty Louis Campbell (TLC) Foundation in his memory to fund innovative research geared toward the treatment of the deadliest childhood cancers (including brain and spinal cord tumors).

She has interviewed with various news outlets including the Today Show, Katie Couric, The Doctors, WNBC-NY, AOL ParentDish, Journal News, WFAN-FM, Bloomberg Radio and WPLJ. Her blog at has generated 5.7 million hits, Ty’s facebook page ( has more than 20,5000 fans, and his Twitter @SuperTyCampbell has more than 1,700 followers.

Her son, Ty Louis Campbell, graced this earth for five beautiful years, and before he left he made it a better place to live. He was astoundingly beautiful and always quick to smile. His sheer magnetism developed not because of the cancer that consumed him, but rather his love for life that defined him. In honor of his courageous fight and infectious spirit, Cindy is committed to spreading general awareness for cancer’s littlest victims while helping uncover better treatment options for children. Treatments that work without robbing children of their childhood.

Prior to her position at the TLC Foundation, Cindy was a marketing director at PricewaterhouseCoopers for five years. Before making the change to corporate marketing, she was employed at various PR agencies including Weber Shandwick and Cohn & Wolfe.

Cindy lives in Pawling, NY with her husband, Lou, and five-year old son, Gavin. She holds a B.A. in Communications/Public Relations from Marist College.
