Ty studies volcanoes

“Physically he's been renewed. Spiritually he's been renewed. ”


- Ty's mom

When Ty, 8, was offered a wish, he asked to be a volcanologist. He traveled to Hawaii with his family and, for the first time in a long time, it was an airplane trip that had nothing to do with doctors. It was a chance to “take a deep breath and relax,” his mom said. 

It's that opportunity to take some stress off your life and just open up and be a kid. ”

— Ty's dad

I love it!!!! Science always got me excited, and I see Ty is no different. This world would be a better (and smarter) place if we had more Ty's.
