THORNTOWN, Ind. (WLFI) — The owners of a Central Indiana tree farm cut their corn maze to honor Tyler Trent this fall. Now, they're cutting a check to help find a cure for the disease he made it his mission to fight.

Dull's Tree Farm announced Sunday more than $7,000 was raised through its fall season to help fight pediatric cancer. The funds will go to the Tyler Trent Cancer Research Foundation at Purdue, as well as supporting families who are facing childhood cancer.

As we reported in August, Lucas and Dana Dull are both Purdue graduates and the family followed Tyler Trent's story. They wanted to cut the maze to honor Trent because they had a pediatric cancer story themselves. Dana's sister was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a form of brain cancer found in pediatric patients. The couple wanted to continue upsetting cancer. 

The farm's pumpkin harvest and corn maze have closed for the season, but the it's Christmas tree season starts Nov. 29.
