WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Another one of Tyler Trent's goals has been reached, even after his death. The Tyler Trent Cancer Research Endowment at Purdue has now reached $1 million dollars in donations.

The Purdue Center for Cancer Research announced the milestone Wednesday. In total, his fund had $500,000 dollars given, and the Walther Cancer Foundation is matching 100-percent of every gift.

Tyler died on New Year's Day after a battle with bone cancer that inspired the world. 

But how about one million more? You can donate here.
