Tyler turned 3 years old in September and is the youngest of 3. He looks up to his older sister, Brianna and older brother, Nate. Playdoh, kinetic sand & hide & seek are some of his favorite things to do. Tyler is a very loving, funny & happy boy when he is feeling well. When he is not feeling well, he loves to snuggle.

Last summer, Tyler had a few fevers and pain in his groin. After emergently taking him to A.I. DuPont, they found a 12cm mass in his abdomen. Tyler was diagnosed with High Risk Neuroblastoma – MYCN Amplification and ALK Gene Positivity. His battle has included 5 rounds of chemotherapy, tumor resection surgery, stem cell transplants, proton radiation and 6 rounds of immunotherapy. Mom wishes her son nothing but a happy, healthy & long life.
