We saw this story on the news this morning, and knew that our first responder community would rally around this cause - so we wanted to share!

The mother of a little boy with leukemia said she wants his seventh birthday to be special, and is looking to first responders for help. Tyler Seddon will turn 7 on March 6, and his mother, Rachel, said she wants it to be the best day of his life.

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

Seddon said Tyler loves firefighters and other first responders, so she wants as many of them as possible to send him birthday cards.

Tyler needs a bone marrow transplant, and he is currently undergoing chemotherapy to buy him some time while the search for a marrow donor continues. A website, "Tyler's Troops," is currently being set up for more information. In the meantime a GoFundMe account was also started to help with donations for Tyler.

Any first responders who would like to send Tyler a birthday card can send them to 96 South Main St., Pascoag, R.I. 02859.
