The Story

Hi, my name is Ty Kingery and I am 17 years old. When I was 10, I was diagnosed with having Juvenile Huntington's Disease (JHD). JHD is a neurodegenerative genetic disorder that causes muscle weakness, dystonia and stiffness. I was a "normal" child who loved playing soccer, riding my bike, playing with my little brother and eating pizza. Now, I am 17 and can no longer walk, talk, eat by mouth nor do anything independently. I still love going to school (for socialization only) , watching my little brother play soccer and just being around people.  Since I can no longer walk , my parents have to carry me to and from our vehicle to transport me. I am 5 ft tall and only 90 lbs but my mom is not much bigger ( 5ft /130lbs). Due to JHD my body posture does not conform very well to regular car seats and even a 5 minute car ride to school is very painful for me. Please visit my website to learn more information about me www.tykingery.org

Without him this would not have been possible. We would like to give pe...rsonal shout outs for certain individuals who went above and beyond what anyone could ask for...Personal friend Eric Runci ~ you are such a blessing to us and we consider you a part of our family and will cherish our relationship forever, you give unselfishly and respect nothing in return. Personal friend Andrew Kloster ~ thank you for everything you are and what you do. God will reward you greatly! Ty's teacher Libby Campos ~you know you have won all of our hearts with your selfless love . Thank you for everything ♥.

We continue to be humbled by all the help from friends, family and complete strangers... Psalm 27:13 says "I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living."
