Tyler is in need of a bone marrow transplant but does not have a matching donor in his family or on the registry. During his treatment, the 6-year-old has used over 200 units of blood and will continue to need more transfusions. See more of this story here http://bit.ly/1dusiqu Via WPRI.com

Tyler’s seventh birthday is just days away, and his mother’s effort to collect cards from police officers and firefighters went viral and gained nationwide attention.

Then Tyler will head to Wright’s Farm where over 100 officers and a Blackhawk helicopter will be there to meet him.
