Tyler had everything laid out for his future until a trip to the doctor led to something completely unexpected. In January, Tyler was diagnosed with Hodgkins lymphoma. This is a type of cancer that primarily affects the lymph system. He also has Wolff-Parkinson-White syndrome, which is an arrhythmia caused by an abnormal electrical pathway in the heart. Tyler has endured both chemotherapy and radiation treatments in order to neutralize the cancer, but has lost all of his hair in the process. He still has a long way to go, but he’s taking it all in stride.
Tyler wished for a brand new desktop computer and got his wish! Since he got his computer, he has barely left it; he uses it every day. With his wish fulfilled, Tyler is simply grateful for the wonderful gifts and the computer from which he constantly exchanges instant messages with his closest friends. His wish experience was truly one that he will never forget.
