Tyler Seddon of Burrillville, R.I. was first diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2010, when he was three years old.

The young boy is a big fan of anything to do with police officers, firefighters, race cars, and motorcycles, and for his 7th birthday – which is today – he wished to receive cards from some of his heroes – the first responders.
