On Tuesday, August 14th, members of the 100 Guys Who Care Boston dropped off a check for $5,300 to the Tyler Foundation. The Tyler Foundation was established back in 2006 by Erik and Heather in honor of their son Tyler who was diagnosed with epilepsy at three weeks old. After weeks, which turned into months, of surgery after surgery, Tyler is still currently receiving physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, hippo-therapy and acupuncture several times a week to help him regain his skills he needs. He is a remarkable little kid and “one tough cookie.”
Thus, the Tyler Foundation was founded after finding how expensive medical bills were becoming. Not to mention for food and parking in and out the hospital. The foundation currently works together to serve families whose children are undergoing treatment for epilepsy at Boston Children’s Hospital and UMass Memorial Children’s Medical Center.
