3: In my eyes Tyler is the hero of the movie. He is the hero because he is the character fighting the cancer to stay alive. He shows people how great living another day is. He knows that one day the cancer will beat him but he leaves that in God's hands. He writes letters to God daily, not praying for himself but for those around him. The weapons he uses are his strength and love for the the Lord. His faith is more powerful than anyone I have ever known. | The Hero
4: The Mentor | People say the Lord works in mysterious ways. In this case, Tyler was diagnosed with Cancer to change the lives of all the people that surrounded him. God inspired Tyler to use his illness to make others believe in him, to depend on him and to love him. Whenever Tyler had an issue, little or big, he would go on the roof and write a letter to God. God would always find a way to respond and let Tyler know what he should do. Tyler would never try to handle a problem on his own. He went to God for everything!
5: The Threshold Guardian | This is Sam. She is Tyler's best friend in the whole wide world. She has been there with Tyler through everything. Whenever Tyler was sick she was by his bedside day and night. When Tyler lost his hair from the Chemotherapy some of the kids at school were making fun of him and Sam put a stop to that! She threatened to beat up every kid that ever said anything bad about Tyler. Tyler taught her that she had no control of other kids and for her to write a letter to God to help her with her anger. She did, and learned to be very happy.
6: Shapeshifter | The Mailman was shocked to see a 10 year old boy send letters to God on a daily basis. He wondered what could possibly so bad in this little boy's life to be doing this. Then, he met Tyler and realized he was sick. So of course, he thought the letters were to pray for a cure. But when he opened one of the letters and saw what Tyler was writing about he was shocked! He saw how thoughtful this little boy was to put all the prayers for everyone else before his own. It made him realize that his problems were simple and there was no need to continue being an alcoholic and just put all his problems and turn his faith to God. This helped him on so many levels. It made him a better person.
8: CANCER, what a word! To hear anyone is diagnosed with cancer is horrifying, but when it's a child it doesn't make sense. I lost my 6 year old cousin to a brain tumor and it just didn't seem real. You put it in your head that kids are supposed to grow up and become parents and grow old. Never in a million years would you think a child would be killed by cancer. You never know the plan God has for you. Whether it be a long fulfilling life or this horrible disease. That's why Tyler has inspired me to live each day to the fullest and to always go to God for everything!! | The Destroyer
