In April of 2015, Tyler was diagnosed with a rare form of Hodgkin's Lymphoma cancer. After months of chemo and treatments surrounded by his family, friends and community - this young man beat Stage 4 NLPHL lymphoma.
It has been nearly 3 years since that first diagnosis and it is difficult to share with you that on April 14, 2018 new spots were found in Tyler's neck, lungs, axillary lymph nodes and intestines. Tyler's immune system is severely weakened from the first cancer drug, Rituximab and has caused him to be very sick in recent months. He has started IVIG infusions and it is not yet known what this means for the journey ahead and what the confirmed new diagnosis will be.
Tyler's passion is friends, fun & lacrosse. The news is especially difficult as high school lacrosse season is kicking off. He's slick and tough. He's an amazing teammate & leader, always with a smile and ease about him.
As teammates and friends across our communities we ask for prayers for Tyler, his parents Traci & Scott, Sandy his brother Mike and grandparents. We also pray for the doctors and again patience for what's to come.
We ask for your help to surround Tyler and family. Funds will support time off work for Traci & Scott to be by Tyler's side and support expenses that will add up quickly.
We can beat what comes together. Let's surround Tyler and family with love and support.
