Facing fears for a friend

A group of friends is trying to help a man with brain cancer.

Their approach is unique. Yes, they hope to raise funds for their friend Tyler Warren, but they also want to show him support as he undergoes chemo for Grade 4 glioblastoma.

They are asking people to do something that terrifies them. Whether it’s walking on the CN Tower Skywalk or playing with a spider, whatever scares you, they are asking you to face.

They want people to take a video of what they are doing and upload it to:

The funds needed would cover Tyler’s medical bills and daily costs as he is no longer able to work.

It has been a little more than a month since Tyler learned the news of the brain cancer so he is in the early stages of treatment.

There’s also a Facebook page called Fearless For Tyler.

What do you think of this approach?

  1. Not sure focusing on fear is the most supportive approach for someone in the health care system. Why not just send a
    donation and good wishes and skip the media-oriented gimmick.

  2. I think because facing cancer and radiation can be a truly scary time, perhaps they are helping their pal to stay strong by knowing they are facing their own fears at the same time he is fighting for his life.
