He lives with him mum and step dad and attends a specialist school in Canberra where he has loads of friends and supports.
Tyrone is well known and widely loved by many people in the Canberra community.
In November last year, Tyrone began having problems with his cerebral shunt which drains the excess fluid from his brain. These complications resulted in Tyrone becoming severly unwell with multiple trips to the hospital over the Christmas holiday break - including one on New Year's Eve and eventually surgery in January.
Unfortunately this surgery only solved the issues for a few weeks with Tyrone becoming very unwell again. This time, Tyrone was flown to Sydney via air ambulance where he underwent another surgical procedure to hopefully fix the problem indefinitely.
Ty became unwell again on 3 July and was flown back to Sydney where he underwent another emergency operation to relieve pressure on his brain.
He has since been transferred back to the Canberra hospital where his parents are seeking medical support in the home to better support Tyrone's ever dissolving quality of life.
Unfortunately, Tyrone hasn't been able to attend much school this year, which means his parents have been required to take extended periods of time off work. This has left them in great financial distress with uncertainty as to how they will afford basics like rent.
Although Tyrone's medical emergency brought their world to a halt, life continued on and the bills continue to add up.
The money will be used to maintain Tyrone's quality of life that his parents worked so hard to give him before his health crashed as well as going towards every day bills and expenses.
Any financial assistance that you can offer at this time will be greatly appreciated by Tyrone and his family.
