Tribute To Tyler

A few weeks ago, I came across the story of little Tyler Burdick, a beautiful 2 year old baby boy who was diagnosed with Infant Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at 4 months old. I typically do not handle stories of "real life" pain and tragedy very well especially when it involves a child. However, something about Tyler's sweet little face made his story irresistible to me. Through tears, I sat and read Tyler's complete story and I was moved beyond belief by it. Being a Mother myself and even more so given the fact that I have a grandson whom is just 15 months old, my heart ached for Tyler and his family.

Little baby Tyler earned his angel wings on November 2, 2011 just after I read his story. Just a few days later, I received an email from a Mary informing me that she was also so moved by Tyler's story that she asked a designer she creates for if she would be willing to organize a charity collaboration to help Tyler's family with their financial needs. I felt it was fate. I knew that I wanted to find some way to help this family and contribute a part of me forever to Tyler. I immediately emailed both Mary and the designer, Miss Mis Designs, that I would indeed be participating in this generous, thoughtful endeavor.  Misty (Miss Mis Designs) had an overwhelming response to this collaboration and it is my honor to share with you the result.
