The Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation cherishes the partnership we formed with WPP in 2009, because working together we have been able to save numerous children’s lives. Due to WPP’s committed, long term follow up with patients, we have seen many children not only survive but thrive following surgical treatments. Parents are also very much part of the WPP family and they are provided housing and support while their children undergo life-saving care.
Regina was born in Mexico with a deadly heart defect. The surgery needed to save her life was not available there, so her parents, Elizabeth and Eduardo, brought their newborn to Children’s Hospital Boston. The Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation partnered with CHB to pay for the surgeries that would save her life.
Update on Team Tye and THE 2016 TOUR DE SOUTH SHORE that was held on October 1, 2016 at Wampatuck State Park. We were chosen as a partner with the prestigious McCourt Foundation in this fundraising endeavor. We want to THANK ALL WHO PARTICIPATED AND DONATED to our first fundraiser in partnership with the McCourt Foundation.
We raised $17,181 of which 90% will go directly to the Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation. WAY TO GO TEAM TYE!
Let’s all keep Ray Tye’s Legacy moving forward into the future.
My husband was a man who adored ritual, celebration and tradition. He found such joy in helping to prepare for gatherings. He loved to set the table, polish the wine glasses and help with the dishes. He was all about being together and cherishing happy moments. As a man he was gentle, understanding and always affectionate; he was infinitely supportive. He was soft spoken (except while watching the Red Sox) and looked forward to small pleasures like a bowl of popcorn or a glass of freshly-squeezed juice. It was so easy to make him happy.
We humans strive for perfection but find its grasp illusive. Few among us reach the height of its calling, but I can tell you as Ray’s wife that he attained a pinnacle of that great virtue, inspiring us to follow his lead in our dealings with the people we meet in this journey called life.
Let me assure you that the work of The Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation will continue with the same spirit, the same vigor and the same compassion it had during my husband’s lifetime. He remains our guiding spirit; he was truly a light upon this earth and now shines on us from his eternal home. As hard as it is without him, we will move onward as Ray would have wished.
