...for sharing Christ's love

Here is a sad story of a family. We know that God is in control, and He knows exactly what this family is going through. Please join us in praying for this family. Our prayer is that they will draw close to the Lord and find comfort through Him. We also pray that they will bring glory to His name through Tyler's Hope.

As a healthy and active 7-year-old boy, Tyler enjoyed playing basketball, soccer, tennis and golf. Just like most active 7-year-old boys, Tyler enjoys sports and playing outside.

In February of 2005 all of this changed. While practicing basketball skills with his father, Tyler could not bring his arm in without it shaking uncontrollably. After multiple doctor visits and misdiagnoses, Tyler's parents were told he had Dystonia. Those original shakes have become crippling muscle and body twists.

Tyler's Hope for a Dystonia Cure is a foundation created to advance research and raise awareness about this disorder.

You can find out more about his foundation at their site, Tyler's Hope.

This family has another son and a daughter. Their daughter has recently been diagnosed with Dystonia, as well.



What a sad life they are having to live right now. I only hope they have our Lord to carry them through the pain.
