TYLER’S STORY

Our Community Stories

TYLER’S STORY

Tyler was a huge surprise. We couldn’t wait to meet him, wondered who he would look like, whether he would be like his siblings, what type of personality he would have and the memories we would share.

Tyler was medically diagnosed with myelomeningocele, hydrocephalus, neural tube defect, Chiari type II malformation. Doctors prepared us for the worst. As quickly as the excitement of bringing Tyler into the world started so did feelings of uncertainty about what his future would hold.

Tyler sadly passed away on the 7th of June 2019.
