Firefighters hold bone marrow, blood drive for local boy

By: Melissa Randall

A bone marrow drive will be held Tuesday for Tyler Seddon. He is the Burrillville boy who is battling leukemia.

The “Be the Match” marrow and blood drive will be held from 2:30 until 7 PM at the Pascoag Fire Department on Pascoag Main St.

Tyler is still in the hospital where he is being treated for an infection. His mother says the family's main focus is to have Tyler home before his birthday next month.

Tyler's story has been shared all over social media. He  became popular earlier this month after his mother posted on Facebook, asking first responders to send him cards on his birthday.

The boy will turn 7 years old on March 6th.
