Tyler was born after a normal pregnancy. However, delays were noticed by his mother the day he was born. While doctors kept ignoring her, stating that he would catch up, Tyler overcame many illnesses and continued to see multiple specialists and therapists since birth.
After 4 brain MRIs and an exonerated gene sequencing, Tyler was diagnosed with a rare genetic brain malformation in May 2017. Since then, Tyler has progressed with all of his therapies and is doing very well in school.
Tyler absolutely loves basketball. He also enjoys reading, swimming, and playing on his iPad. His elementary school, church, and large family network are strong supporters of him and his family.
