Purdue graduate and super-fan Tyler Trent is trying to pull off one last upset. He’s looking for help to do it.
Trent, who has inspired millions as he battles bone cancer and fights with a positive attitude and strong will, recently released a biography, detailing his life. Trent’s goal in publishing the story is to raise $1 million in cancer research.

“Would u consider helping me predict one last upset?” Trent wrote on Twitter. “This time, it’s not about football, it’s about life. Please consider helping me raise $1,000,000 for cancer research.”
