    Tyler has Myasthenia Gravis, a rare disease that makes it hard at times to walk, lift his arms and occasionally breathe.

    Dealing with the disease is hard enough, but Tyler’s also working on his bachelor’s degree in computer information systems and technology. It’s been tough, but he’s been persistent, taking classes part time for the past 7 ½ years. He plans to graduate in December.

    “Overall, I’ve kept a very positive and hopeful attitude. College can be a bit of a struggle, but I’m doing my best to finish.”

    He’s grateful to be on a campus where people are so supportive.

    “I love that Pitt-Bradford is a welcoming, friendly and accepting campus that has faculty and staff who go above and beyond to help others.”

    He’s following that example of helping others by volunteering with the Myasthenia Gravis Hope Foundation. As the foundation’s first Ambassador of Hope, Tyler is spreading awareness of the disease to others and helping other students with MG navigate college.
