For our Man Crush Monday, we’d like to introduce you to Tyler (http://www.gofundme.com/jpcpbs). Tyler is an awesome 6 year old young man who was diagnosed with a Primitive Neuroectodermal Tumor on New Years Eve. This past Saturday the guys from the team stopped by to hang out with Tyler and to bring him a care package that was supplied by businesses that partner with K Cancer Baseball in our mission to support state line families battling childhood cancer.
We found out that Tyler was a big Lego fan. When the boys sat down at the table and pulled out the Lego’s they got right to work. After letting Britton, Collin, and Luca start building, we had to go to the bullpen and bring Tyler in. He finished the job and got the W!
Tyler and his family are staring down 30 weeks of treatment, with a majority of his treatment taking place at the incredible Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. Over the next few months there will be a ton of time spent in the car on Interstate 90 and in hospital rooms. As Wisconsin/Illinois state line residents, we are blessed to live in a tight knit community whose members know how to take care of each other. If you are able to help support Tyler as he fights cancer, go to his fundme page and contribute. I know that this awesome young guy and his family will appreciate it!
