The creator of the Tye Blanton Foundation is Michaela Blanton, Tye's mother along with family and friends.  Michaela is the wife of late trooper Shawn Blanton. With the foundation we are able to give back to the community, after all of the help they have given us. The foundation is a way to honor Tye everyday while helping to change the lives of other babies like Tye.
