Making A Difference: Police Help Birthday Boy Celebrate

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) -- Thanks to the Lexington Police Department, one boy with cancer got to live his lifelong dream.

Tyler Biggs has an inoperable brain tumor that he has been battling since birth. Most recently, the Leestown Middle School student completed 18 months of chemo.

Doctors didn't expect him to live past ten.

“He's stable now. So now we're just living our life and he's 13,” said his mother Amanda.

Tyler's birthday is more than just another year, it is a milestone.

So when he turned 13, Lexington police were more than willing to help him celebrate. Mayor Jim Gray and the Lexington Fire Department even joined in on the festivities.

Police drove him to school in a real police car with a full-on police escort all the way there.

His mother says that Tyler was unable to contain his excitement.

“I think this is the happiest I've ever seen the boy,” said Amanda.

“Sometimes you think you've got issues or you got problems going on, and then you see a kid like this who's riding in a police car, that's all he's doing having the time of his life,” said Ofc. B. J. Blank.
