Ty is 14 years old and in the 8th grade. In November of 2006 he was diagnosed with JHD. He is very inspirational. He rode a zamboni and went to Disney on ice. For his make a wish he wished to go on a disney cruise on June 2007. ‘Ty and his family set sail on a 5-day cruise aboard the Disney Wonder Ship. He uses a wheelchair unless he goes for very short distances and has to get botox injections to be able to close his mouth. He uses a feeding tube so he can eat and get the supplements and nourishment he need since its so hard for him to swallow.
‘Ty had his bi-annual appointment at Children’s Hospital in Birmingham on October 1. He has been diagnosed with
oromandibular dystonia. Many of you who have seen him recently have noticed that Ty cannot close his mouth and his tongue is always out. He will have botox injections into his jaw muscles within the next few weeks. Please pray that this procedure will give him some relief’ He loves to watch WWE Wrestling and Tom and Jerry. He loves Blue and Orange.
