#LifeIsFragile…Just Ask Ty

A part of the Midwest/West Catastrophic Illness Fund

Who I Am

Ty was 8 when he became sick with what looked like the flu. He was diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica, an illness that has left him paralyzed from the chest down.

Why I Fundraise

“Physical therapy has given him endless possibilities for his future. The therapy is expensive: $95 per hour and not covered by Ty’s insurance.”

How I Hope

“Ty is extremely determined and believes with all his heart that he will someday walk again.”
