Tyler is our cancer warrior. One night, at the age of four, he suddenly found himself struggling to breathe. He was rushed to the emergency room, where an x-ray quickly revealed a large tumor filling his chest, surrounding his heart and compressing his airway. That night was the beginning of a long journey that Tyler has been on for over four years now. After initially going into remission, Tyler has experienced two relapses, chemotherapy, a bone-marrow transplant, full body radiation, and countless surgeries. Far too many months of his life have been spent in the hospital. And although Tyler is still in treatment and dealing with side effects the great news is that Tyler is now cancer-free!

Every year Tyler participates in Light the Night, where his team walks to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS funds lifesaving research that has contributed to major advances in the treatment of blood cancers and other types of cancer. In fact, in 2009 alone, LLS researchers were conducting more than 90 clinical trials, a critical step in the development of new treatments and cures that will help patients live better, longer lives.

Please consider making a donation to support LLS and help save lives. And we'd love to have you join our Team at Light the Night!

    "Thank you for the opportunity to make a donation to further cancer research in the name of my son Douglas who died from sacrococcogeal teratoma in 1998. Research has advanced dramatically since then and will continue to do so, and I'm happy to hear your son is doing well. I send my best to your family. Regards, Michelle"
