FedEx Purple Eagle 2015 Honors St. Jude Patient Tyler West [Video]

June 11, 2015

Tyler West is a 9-year-old boy who loves Minecraft, dinosaurs and going to the zoo. He is also a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, undergoing treatment in his battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). At the FedEx St. Jude Classic golf tournament in Memphis, Tyler was in the spotlight as he unveiled his name on the side of a FedEx Cessna Caravan. He’s the latest honoree in the Purple Eagle program in which FedEx dedicates a feeder plane in honor of a team member’s child who’s also a patient at St. Jude. In addition, FedEx had a happy surprise to announce as part of its decades-long support of St. Jude’s lifesaving mission.
