When Tyler was a young child, tests showed that he had some abnormalities known to cause epilepsy. At 8 years old, Tyler had his first grand mal seizure.
Tyler is the family comedian. He’s smart as a whip with a wonderful sense of humor. Known to be a little dare-devil, Tyler has a wildly adventurous spirit. Tyler’s passion is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He dreams of becoming just like “Raphael” or “Donatello” when he grows up. If that life path doesn’t work out though, he told Kids Wish Network that he’d be just as happy with his backup plan of becoming a member of the team for his home state heroes, the Boston Red Sox.
So, of course, Kids Wish Network partnered with the Boston Red Sox on a VIP Experience for Tyler!
After checking in at the Boston Park Plaza, located in the heart of the city, Tyler’s day started with lunch at the famous Wahlburger’s. Tyler and his family then headed over to Fenway Park for a VIP tour and a chance to watch batting practice, take pictures, and ask for autographs from some of baseball’s greatest. It was an exciting game against the NY Yankees.
It didn’t stop there for Tyler. The following day, he was able to take in all of the attractions at Legoland Discovery Center before dinner at Fire+Ice in the heart of the Back Bay neighborhood of Boston where Tyler “trained” as a chef! Two more stops on the way home the next day – Tyler enjoyed the fun and silliness of The Blue Man Group and a hardy dinner at Hard Rock Cafe.
Kids Wish Network would like to thank the following sponsors for helping make Tyler’s wish come true:
• Boston Red Sox
• Boston Park Plaza
• Hard Rock Café
• Legoland Discovery Center
• The Blue Man Group
