Boy battling cancer asks for birthday cards from firefighters

Tyler Seddon is about to turn 7 and would like cards from his favorite first responders

By FireRescue1 Staff

PASCOAG, R.I. — A boy who has been diagnosed with leukemia for the second time is about to celebrate his seventh birthday, and wants to receive cards from his favorite heroes: police and firefighters.

Tyler Seddon, 6, is undergoing chemotherapy while doctors search for a bone marrow donor, according to WCVB.

“He goes crazy over firefighters and police,” said Tyler’s mother, Rachel. “We want this to be a special birthday, because you never know what could be next.”

Facebook page and a GoFundMe account have been set up to keep the community updated on Tyler’s progress and help with donations as he awaits his birthday, which is March 6.

Birthday cards for Tyler can be sent to 96 South Main Street, Pascoag, R.I. 02859

There will be a "be the match drive" and a blood drive at the Pascoag Fire Department on February 25 from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., according to ABC6.
