Ty Q.

Born on October 3, 1996, Ty suffers from Niemann-Pick, type C. He loves nothing more than making people laugh, and is always ready with an unexpected (and delightful) wisecrack. For example, when his father one day said, on his way out the door, “I have to go work. Someone has to make the money to feed the children,” Ty answered immediately with: “But Dad…I don’t eat money!”

Ty’s family would like to thank the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation and the International Niemann-Pick Disease Alliance for their vital support.
