Video from our 2nd Annual Tyler Foundation Fundraising Dinner November 6, 2010
"Dear Tyler Foundation, my husband and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the generosity you have shown us. It has been a difficult road with the diagnosis of seizures with our youngest son and then to add to it financial difficulties, it was a bit overwhelming but we did see the light, through the Tyler Foundation. We can not thank you enough."
"We were given a wonderful opportunity to always ensure we keep a perspective on what in life is truly important. With the birth or our son, we were dealt a deck of cards that included long hospital stays, countless sleepless nights, and a few ulcers from the worry tied to all of it. We were presented with an opportunity to get a much needed surgery. We would be 1115 miles from home for more than 12 weeks. Sometimes when you think you are walking the road alone a little angel pops up to hold your hand. We were waiting for Dylan to get out of surgery on the first day and the receptionist at the surgery desk brought us a package. In a world of voice mail and emails somebody just mailed. A book, some slippers, a candle, a few gift cards were in our little box, but it came with a lot more. The folks at the Tyler Foundation have walked a mile in the shoes we were wearing now. It really was not the stuff it was “the thought that mattered to us”. Sometimes a cliché is just what you need to warm your soul. Thank God for the people that make a small action to help those of us in need of a little support."
"Heather, Erik and The Tyler Foundation,
Many thanks for your great act of kindness. You have really helped me in this hard time. Being able to have a smooth transistion home with no worries was truly made by you and your foundation.
I do not have enough words to Thank-You.
Thank-you truly from the bottom of my heart."
"The gift cards allowed us to focus on our daughter's medical needs and not worry about how we were going to
pay for dinner that night or how much
parking was going to cost at the end
of our long stay."
"The Plotkins are angels and their
foundation is one that deserves to be
recognized and supported. They are
people, just like you and me, and
they're simply helping people during
a time of need."

"The emotional and financial support that
you have given us during this difficult time
will not be forgotten. Your kind words of
encouragement, compassion, and your
'hands on' knowledge of epilepsy surgery
helped ease our concerns and fears."
"Illness is a burden, but your generous
actions have lightened the load. Your
commitment and dedication to our children
with epilepsy is sincerely appreciated and
we thank you from the bottoms of our
