come true for a little boy with leukemia


Tyler Seddon loves police officers and firefighters so much so that’s all he wanted for his 7th birthday was birthday wishes from local first responders!  Tyler’s mom reached out to local firefighters and police officers in hopes to make Tyler’s birthday teh best birthday ever.  The response was overwhelming and Tyler received cards from all over the country and birthday wishes from all over the world. 

Sean Coyle and the Southie firefighters from Engine 2 Ladder 19 (K and East Fourth Street) Sean Coyle helped to collect signatures and cards from local first responders. “Like so many other houses and departments , we heard this story and wanted to do our part to make Tyler’s birthday wish come true. We appreciate all the signatures on his card and were pleased to put all his gifts together in a package and contribute to his special day.”

Tyler needs a bone marrow transplant and is undergoing chemotherapy.
