There is good news for the young Burrillville boy battling leukemia for a second time. 7-year-old Tyler Seddon is on the road to recovery and is almost in remission. 

His mother posted on FaceBook that Tyler's cancer cells have decreased dramatically and that he's feeling great. Tyler will have two more cycles of chemo. Once a donor is found he'll be ready for a bone marrow transplant.

Earlier this month hundreds of law enforcement members, firefighters and first responders from across the region turned out to help celebrate Tyler's birthday.
