BURRILLVILLE – When Tyler Seddon of Pascoag turns 7 on March 6 he will be greeted be a sea of police uniforms and fire hats.

Tyler, who has leukemia, loves police and firemen, and his one birthday wish is to get lots of birthday cards from his heroes.

“He goes crazy over firefighters and police,” says Tyler’s mother, Rachel. “We want this to be a special birthday, because you never know what could be next.”

After hearing about Tyler’s special birthday request, law enforcement officers, firefighters and first responders from throughout Rhode Island and around the country are mobilizing to answer the call by sending as many cards as possible.

But that’s not all.

Hundreds of police officers, firefighters and first responders will take part in a massive convoy from East Providence to Burrillville where they will hand-deliver cards, patches and other items to Tyler on his big day.
