Purdue superfan battling cancer plans to join the ‘Iowa Wave’

Purdue superfan Tyler Trent tweeted that he would be at the Iowa football game this Saturday if his health allows.

In his tweet, he also says they will take time to participate in the Iowa wave.

20-year-old Tyler Trent has terminal cancer, and he had to leave school for 24-hour hospice care.

Fans honored him before the Ohio State game. They chanted, “Cancer Sucks,” with #TylerStrong signs.

The Hawkeyes are playing Purdue starting at 3:30 p.m.

Here’s a look at his tweet:
