Board Of Directors

Meet the team behind the foundation.

Executive Director & CEO

Tyler is the founder of the Hope vs Cancer Foundation. The driving force behind the foundation, Tyler is a former International model and rugby player, as well as a tattoo aficionado.

What began as an arts & crafts project to cheer up a few local kids going through treatment, Stover realized the potential of the Hope vs Cancer Foundation, and it has organically grown to what you see today, just a few months later.

With over 25 years of experience working for and with nonprofits, Tyler is excited to bring a new and innovative approach to both lifting children’s spirits that are undergoing treatment and appropriating funds to leading pediatric cancer research.

“If we raise awareness, the funding will follow, and if it doesn’t, we are prepared to go get it ourselves.”  –Tyler Stover
