THIS JUST IN: Tyler to undergo bone marrow transplant

May 21, 2014

BURRILLVILLE – Tyler Seddon, the Pascoag boy who celebrated his seventh birthday in March with the help of thousands of police officers and firefighters, is scheduled to undergo a bone marrow transplant to treat his leukemia during the first week of June.
Tyler, who was declared cancer free last month, will be admitted to the hospital Friday where he will undergo tests and preparations for the transplant, which is tentatively scheduled for June 2-3.
After the transplant, Tyler is expected to remain in the hospital for upwards of 10 weeks, according to Lisa Rabideau of the Burrillville Police Department, who spoke to Tyler’s mother, Rachel Seddon-Dunn, earlier this week.,
“This is awesome news,” said Rabideau.
Seddon-Dunn said on her Facebook page last month that a biopsy Tyler had at the time showed his body free of cancer cells, which means Tyler could move forward with the transplant.
