Ray Tye

Ray Tye oversees the Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation with his wife Eileen.

A. Raymond Tye made his money in liquor and sold his company United Liquors Ltd to the Martignetti family in 2006 for an undisclosed sum.

Ray and Eileen started the Foundation five years ago after their son died of multiple myeloma, a cancer of the plasma cell that is incurable. "I found out that all the money in the world couldn't save him, but I did realize that money could save lives," Tye said.

The motto of the Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation is "We will never stop caring," and that has been the case with their latest quest. Two-year-old, Safia, has a twelve pound tumor growing in his kidney.  The Foundation flew him from his home in Iraq to Jordan for a five hour procedure to remove the tumor.  The foundation also covered all medical expenses.

Safia has survived the surgery and has a lengthy recovery ahead, thanks to the Ray Tye Medical Aid Foundation.
