When cancer strikes anyone it's tragic but when it's children, it just breaks my heart. This week's Teapot Tuesday challenge Destination is Tyler. Tyler is a very sweet 11 year old boy who is currently in remission from Rhabdomyosarcoma, a childhood cancer. He must still undergo many surgeries to repair the devastation caused by the cancer.
Tyler's family must continually raise funds for Tyler's travelling expenses. How wonderful that his family has found a compassionate and caring doctor who will perform his surgeries at no cost. The travelling back and forth is expensive, though.
Cindy is requesting that if you are able, a $1.00 bill framed in some way on your card would help fund Tyler's upcoming trip. Not required, not expected. Just a little donation request on the side....
Here is Tyler's website with much more information as well as pictures of Tyler and updates. Here is the address to mail your card to:
P.O. Box 14386
Greenville, SC 29610-4386
You can find more info at the Destination site here. Like all kids, Tyler loves to get mail and he loves strawberry milkshakes. Our challenge is to send Tyler smiles and jokes.
I hope Garfield brings Tyler a giggle or two.
Thanks for helping and if you can, could you please share this on your blog?
