AND Tyler McGrath, a young man whose fight against leukemia drew support from race teams and race fans all over the country, died Sunday at his home in Lowville, N.Y., on his ninth birthday. Tyler had been at home for about a week after doctors at Sloan Kettering hospital in New York City determined they could do no more to help him. The son of John McGrath and Victoria Talbot received a hero?s welcome in his hometown, where he was able to spend his final days with his mother; his sister, Morgan; his dog, Wilson, and his family and friends. "I am devastated, but in a sense relieved that he is no longer suffering," Talbot wrote Monday afternoon on the web site that has chronicled her son?s battle with the disease first diagnosed in April 2001. "He went through so much and fought so hard."(ThatsRacin.com)(7-23-2002)
