Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints” (Psalm 116:15).


Late Tuesday afternoon, January 1, 2019, Tyler Trent joined the mighty band of saints who have gone before. When Tyler stepped into heaven, he was surrounded by his parents, Tony and Kelly Trent, and his brothers Blake and Ethan.


Among those whose love and grief came pouring in with the announcement of his passing, Tyler’s beloved Purdue University immediately issued this statement: 


"First and foremost, we offer our condolences to Tyler's family and friends. While there are no words to ease the hurt at times like this, we hope some comfort can be found in knowing what an inspiration Tyler was to our student-athletes, coaches, staff and fans. The entire Purdue Athletics family has been touched by his courageous battle, positive spirit and unwavering faith. Tyler was the embodiment of a true Boilermaker who will live on in each of us. We will forever be #TylerStrong."


This book will give you a deep and inspiring look into the heart of a young man whose short life will leave an indelible mark on the millions who carefully followed his story. 


Tyler’s dream was to raise $1 million for cancer research and for families battling cancer. With every copy of the book sold here, you will share in an investment in Tyler’s bold vision. Thank you. 


"This story is remarkable and amazing. The only thing that would make it better is if we didn't have to tell this story to begin with."
