KylerStrong Foundation continues to move forward!
 On January 25th, 2018 the Bradley Family along with members of the KylerStrong Foundation presented a check in the amount of $46,000 to Cincinnati Children's Hospital for continued research to find the cause, cure and prevention of DIPG childhood brain cancer.  Doctor Maryam Fouladi (Kyler's clinical Doctor and research lead) accepted the check on behalf of Cincinnati Children's Hospital and the ongoing international DIPG research.  This check brings the total amount donated by the Foundation to $106,000 over the last 18 months.  These funds raised are not from corporate sponsors or large donations, rather from the small donations by individuals in the community touched by Kyler's story and attending KylerStrong fundraisers.  We thank each and every one of you!
Also at this presentation, Ohio Senator Bill Coley presented the Bill approved by the Ohio Senate and House and signed by Ohio Governor Kasich approving the custom Ohio license plates.  These plates will be available to order when you renew your vehicle's registration!   A percentage of the plate fee will go to the KylerStrong Foundation where 100% of the funds go directly to DIPG research.  It will be exciting to see Kyler's likeness flying all over the State of Ohio promoting his cause!  He said he wanted to be famous!
