Let's help Tyler beat cancer!

Raised by 67 people in 36 months


Tyler Polanco is 8 year's old and was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma.  It is a cancer of the bone with tumors inside the bone marrow. He has undergone chemotherapy, will have two bone marrow transplants, followed by radiation therapy and lastly by immunotherapy. This will be an 18 month long journey to eradicate the disease.

At this time the family is enduring emotional and physical strain from this heart wrenching diagnosis. Along with that are the unplanned financial hardships, and the cost of being off  of work in June for 12 long weeks-during the transplants.

Every dollar donated will help the family keep up with bills while they tend to Tyler's health. So please give what you can as it means a lot to the family.  James and Jackie will be so grateful for your help! It will mean: not having to spend time worrying about making ends meet. It will allow them to focus their time and attention on Tyler's health while raising their other two children.

Thank you in advance for sharing this link with your family, friends, colleagues!

Tyler had an MIBG scan today to see how much cancer is left. They compared the original scan to the one taken today. I'm happy to report that although the tumors are still very much there, the chemo is doing a good job this far. The tumors have shrunk. A lot! This is great news! Just two more cycles of chemo before the transplants.

Hello Everyone,
First let me begin by sharing with each of you that Jimmy and Jackie are so THANKFUL for all the support each of you have given to them. From the FB comments, to the GoFundMe contributions and today’s Fundraiser given by their amazing friends at CalWaters. The outpour has been so tremendous that words seem powerless to express their gratitude. They have asked that I provide a few updates regarding Tyler.

Tyler underwent cycle 4 of chemotherapy last week. It went smoothly with minimal nausea/vomiting. Great-Grandma Alice was there to provide lots of TLC.

On May 3rd, Tyler will undergo cycle 5 of chemotherapy and in addition will have an MRI to determine the amount of Cancer that has been destroyed. They anticipate that the cycle 5 chemotherapy will be challenging for Tyler but hope for the best.

Tyler will undergo his first bone marrow transplant after completing cycle 6 of chemotherapy which is scheduled for end of May.

Please feel free to send some positive thoughts directly to Tyler on his FB page “Tygrace Polanco”.

Again, Jimmy, Jackie and the Polanco Family thank you and appreciate your support more than you know. Please feel free to share Tyler’s page. #FightforTyler

Much Love
Jimmy and Jackie

Tyler's blood transfusion yesterday was a success! His white blood cell count is now at a normal level, which means he's on schedule for Cycle-Four of chemo this coming Tuesday.

Thank you for your continued prayers and contributions!! -Jimmy & Jackie
Tyler is feeling better now that his counts are back up!

I have this picture taken with a 4 month old dog by the name of BabyBoy https://flic.kr/p/FdYz2P And I have sent the picture to Tyler's Mom hoping Tyler get the message and story of BabyBoy who lost her 3 siblings and Mom on his birth date. When I saw BabyBoy, he was as live as ever playing with a stick darting in front of me in the parking lot of Mono Lake Old Marina area. And I saw a greeting card with title 'Find You Inner Animal' and I wish to help more. Prayers and thoughts are with Tyler and his beloved family. Tyler: Find Your Inner Self like BabyBoy who has survived the odd . If appropriate, please write me and I will try to find a way to print and frame 'Find Your Inner Animal' shot with BabyBoy as a gift for Tyler. I am an email or phone call away.
