Check on Tyler…

“Tyler Alfriend was a energetic, athletic, healthy 15 year old boy who was diagnosed with stage IV Burkitt’s Lymphoma on November 14, 2007. This site is for all his friends and family who love Tyler and are praying for him. This blog is for those who wish to send him messages as we look forward to the great day he comes home healthy and cancer free. Please feel free to post any sports comments (Tyler knows more than all of us), jokes, thoughts, and prayers.”

The above is the opening of Tyler Alfriend’s blog, written by Kyle, Tyler’s father. You need to hit Tyler’s blog. This young man is battling hard against this disease (cancer), that I am learning is an equal opportunity abuser. It takes on many forms and strikes at any age.

I am again faced with the question, why. Why has this talented, athletic young man walking through this? Tyler, we are walking beside you in prayer. I hope to meet you in the next few days, as I am back to work now at Children’s. Team Tyler is going strong and we are behind you all the way to CURE DAY!!!

You can check out what is happening with Tyler at http://tyleralfriend.blogspot.com/. Go check it out and let Tyler know that we are supporting him and let him know and feel the power of prayer!!

Rock on, Tyler!

  1. Tyler, I will pray for your strength and healing. My 6 year old son was diagnosed with angiosarcoma (a rare aggresive cancer), and I see the struggles and pain this disease leaves in its path. I pray God will heal you and give you strength. I pray that God will heal the broken hearts in your family. God Bless you Tyler.
