MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Firefighters and police across the nation, including here in Horry County, are making sure Tyler Seddon's seventh birthday is one he'll never forget.

Tyler, who lives in Pascoag, Rhode Island, was recently diagnosed with leukemia for a second time, after battling it the first time when he was just three years old.

Tyler's a big fan of police officers, firefighters and other first responders, so his mother set up a Facebook page asking them to send him birthday cards. The birthday wish went viral, and now officers from around the country are posting "Happy Birthday Tyler" videos to YouTube and social media.

Horry County Fire Rescue posted the video above to their Facebook page (mobile users can view it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJj1ot7h5oQ), and includes firefighters from around the county wishing Tyler a Happy Birthday.

See more birthday wishes on the Official Tyler's Troops Facebook group:
