An award ceremony at Prichard Elementary in Grayson Kentucky was recently held for Tyler Bush, a fifth grader who for the third straight year broke a fund raising record by collecting over two thousand dollars.

This noble mission that he embarks on every year became very personal for Bush when six months ago he was diagnosed with Cancer himself.

But with the support of the community Bush's cancer is in full remission, and now he's inspiring the city of Grayson in a whole new way.

    Thank you Dave, for your report on Tyler Bush. I have known his Dad since he was born, and have followed Tyler's progress throughout his ordeal. I visit my daughter in Lexington often, and listen to your broadcasts. You are a great reporter. Sue

    God Bless this child. Every parent reading this should make their kids read this and show their kids that yes, it CAN happen to you, too, stop being selfish and stop being a "gimme" society and learn from a boy who has inspired all of us to be better people than we have been.
