My Story

Tyler is an active four year old who loves motorsports, basketball and any other outside sport. His personality is always upbeat and he never complains when he goes for treatments. The doctors and nurses think he is very unique and brave for he never cries when he gets needles and always offers his "juiciest" finger when he gets fingersticks. He has come a long way since his diagnosis and is more aware of peoples feelings. If he sees a child crying at the Dr's he will give them a pat on the back or tell them they will be okay. He knows that the doctors are making him better. He has three more years until he is considered "cured" and we are very optimistic and look forward to the day when we can put this all behind us.
