Kings TV feature on inspirational 8th grade cancer patient Tyler Hallsey wins award

Often times the discussion on who our heroes are is limited to police, firefighters and our soldiers — and rightfully so — but the story of Arizona eighth grader Tyler Hallsey is one that might make each of the aforementioned tough guys take notice.

Hallsey was diagnosed with a brain tumor on February 8.  Pontine Glioma was the diagnosis, something that just 100-150 children get diagnosed with every year.

Shortly after being diagnosed, Tyler sat with his father Chris and they talked about the road ahead and what they should do.  “Whatever it takes,” Tyler said, and that has been the rallying cry for friends, family and supporters as they collectively try to tackle the tumor head on.

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ARIA (American Renaissance Institute of Arts) Free Kids Fair

ELK GROVE, CA - Elk Grove and surrounding communities have been overlooked and under-appreciated when it comes to a regional theater and community arts center.

The need for the American Renaissance Institute of Arts is staggering, as community members thirst for arts education and performances ranging from ballet to musicals to theater to orchestral, jazz and ensemble-like performances. The research shows that nothing of this kind has been proposed, or even thought of in the private sector.

This venture was conceived from the ground-up to be self-sustaining, year in and year out without having to depend on money from rich patrons of the arts, without the need for grants, loans or angel investors.
