My Story

Tyler Joe Warren is a normal teenage boy. He was diagnosed at the end of Kindergarten with ALL and had a bone marrow transplant within a few months. It was a long road but we made it out the other side and now Tyler loves playing video games, playing with friends and all sports.

We got to meet Tyler's bone marrow donor in 2010 and it was an experience to remember. It is hard to explain meeting the woman who saved your son's life. In 2012, we had a scare at Tyler's annual check-up. He had an MRI as part of a research study and they discovered something on his brain. They could tell immediately there was old and new bleeding. It turned out to be a cavernous malformation which is benign and on the temporal lobe near the surface so easy to remove. Tyler became a St. Jude graduate in September of 2013! I hope that one day soon there can be a cure for all cancer.
