Tyrie is all Smiles Thanks to her Funny Cap Hero

Tyrie was recently diagnosed with AML (Acute Myeloid Leukemia), a rare and fast-growing form of cancer of the blood and bone marrow.

Tyrie chose Ellen DeGeneres as her Cap Hero because she’s funny and “loves to scare people for Halloween by sending her producer and special guests to haunted houses.” Tyrie thinks that Ellen is a loving and caring person, which is how she is described by her family and friends. Tyrie describes herself as a person who is always nice to others, never lets anything get her down and always dreams big. She loves to make friends and dreams about going to college, getting a job and buying a house for herself and her parents.  “This cap means joy and happiness to me because I didn’t believe that Ellen would take the time to sign my cap.” We hope Tyrie never stops dreaming big and that her new cap helps keep her smiling.
