ST. CLOUD, Minn. -- A 2-year-old St. Cloud boy has lost his battle with infant leukemia. Tyler Burdick was diagnosed at 4 months old with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
He relapsed in April and recently underwent a bone-marrow transplant in September.
He passed away Wednesday afternoon at Amplatz Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.
A benefit is planned for Burdick's family for 5-8 p.m. Sunday at Pizza Ranch, 110 Second St. S. in Waite Park.
Burdick's father, Dan Burdick, lost his job last month.
Along with Dan, Tyler leaves his mother, Stephanie, and brothers Dawson and Gabriel.
