Facing Cancer at Christmas
A gift of courage: Tyler's Fireman Suit.

Tyler is six years old and was diagnosed with cancer in November 2012. On Christmas day, while in hospital, Tyler received a Santa sack from Child Cancer Foundation. In it was a fireman’s suit and as you will see in our video, this little suit has become a special treasure.

Tyler and his Grandmonther Michelle would like to share their Christmas video with you. Watch Video
