ALBANY, N.Y. -- Several local police agencies are wishing a young Rhode Island boy battling Leukemia a happy birthday.

Tyler Seddon is turning 7, and he is now in his second battle with Leukemia. His heroes are police and firefighters, so his mother spearheaded an online campaign to have members of law enforcement and fire departments send cards to Tyler for his birthday.

He was named police chief of Burrilville, RI for the day.

The recruits and Academy Training Officers of the 201st Session of the Basic School took it a step further, collecting more than $1000 in donations to help with his medical expenses and delivered boxes of cards and gifts.

The Whitehall Police Department also sent Tyler a package for his special day.
