Tyler’s Story – Metal, Mosh Pits, and Magic
This is Tyler! Tyler had Hereditary Spastic Paraplegia (and some other conditions) which affects his muscles, and makes it hard for him to move and speak. He likes metal, violent video games, and pro wrestling, which he goes to every month. He knows the wrestlers, and has a running feud with one of the refs. Tyler has fought through a difficult childhood to have a great life. Check it out!
