Team Mildenhall Airman shares story of loss to raise awareness of childhood cancer

Ty Nordstrom was just 4 years old when he caught a large catfish by himself.

"It weighed around 7 pounds! He was very proud of himself - it was a long, hard-fought battle between the two of them," reminisced his dad, Master Sgt. Lyle Nordstrom, 352nd Special Operations Group Inspector General superintendent from Iron River, Mich.

But that wasn't the only battle Ty faced at such a young age. He soon had to deal with something much scarier - cancer.

He hadn't yet reached his fifth birthday when he was diagnosed. Ty died Nov. 13, 2009 - a month before his seventh birthday. He'd been suffering from non-rhabdomyosarcoma.
