Tyler Staab was diagnosed with dystonia 2 years ago. But instead of getting discouraged, his parents got hope. Dystonia is incurable but it hasn't put a damper on his playful character.
Last year Tyler's family started "Tyler's Hope," a golf tournament where hundreds of people play golf and help raise money for a cure for dystonia. This year 140 golfers came out to support the cause. But the tournament doesn't just help Tyler.
Rick Staab, Tyler's father says, "We give a certain amount of money to different researchers around the country. Our ultimate goal is to build a building at UF that will bring in top researchers and find a cure."
Tyler's parents say he's still in the gifted program at school.
The golf tournament isn't the only way they raise money for dystonia. They have a poker tournament and wine tastings.
