First responders have gathered in Rhode Island Thursday to help a very special boy celebrate his birthday in a big way.
Battling leukemia for a second time, Tyler Seddon turned 7 on Thursday, and the firefighters and police officers he loves so much really came through for him.
Tyler’s birthday party began at the police station, where he wore his own uniform as he was sworn in as honorary police chief for a day.
Tyler stopped at his school to see his friends before continuing to another celebration at Wrights Chicken Farm, in Burrillville.
A little boy with leukemia, who has always been a big fan of police officers and firefighters, is getting a one-of-a-kind birthday treat.
All Tyler Seddon wanted was cards from first responders for his seventh
birthday, but they are giving him a whole lot more than that.
Police are swearing-in Tyler as chief for the day, and a large celebration is taking place in Burrillville, Rhode Island.
He’s also being driven around in a cruiser and is guest of honor at a birthday party attended by hundreds of firefighters, police officers and first responders from several states.
