Tyler Crumsey has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. It’s a progressive, muscle wasting disease that’s one of nine different types of Muscular Dystrophy. In this particular strain, there’s an absence of an essential protein in the muscles that keep them intact. It has robbed Tyler of his ability to walk, and he is in a wheelchair.
However, it hasn’t taken away his fighting spirit, his bright smile, or the strong, supportive arms of his family and friends.
