About the Tyler Foundation

The Tyler Foundation is a Japan-based organisation that supports children with cancer as well as their families. The idea for the foundation was inspired by Mark and Kim Ferris’ son Tyler’s two-year battle with infant leukemia. Tyler received excellent care at the National Center for Child Health and Development in Japan, however Tyler's family decided that there was more that could be done to support young cancer patients and their families. The foundation has set up and supports a number of programs including counseling, support, and child care, and has plans to further expand the range of programs offered.
