Tyler a young man with Autism robbed of his joy.

I (Danyelle) am the mother to this young man... my sons name is Tyler. Tyler is high functioning autistic and put every penny he could save into making this 16foot aluminum boat his own.. he made plywood raised floors with storage underneath... carpeted the floors... installed wiring for his fish finder and installed a couple marine seats so he could be comfortable when fishing. He may have the shell back but everything inside was ruined... the motor,gas tanks and lines were stolen. I need to raise money so my son can get back the ONLY THING HE ENJOYS and that's his live of being on the water fishing. He recently started being sponsored by Grumpy Baits and had just spend money saved for a go pro to make videos while out on the water.
 Ty didnt have the easiest life growing up with his disabilities and it took him a very long time of saving to get this boat and fix it up to his liking. I just want people to realize that being autistic makes things like this SO MICH HARDER to achieve than it would a neurotypical person. And the hurt its brought has broken his spirit completely.  I watched as my son sobbed as his boat was pulled from the water... seeing all the damage all he could say was "my life is ruined.. they took the only thing I have away from me mom.. I worked so hard and it's all ruined". As a mother I'm sure you can imagine how I felt.

I'm hoping a Go Fund Me to hopefully fundraise enough for him to redo the inside of the boat and replace the motor/gas tanks/lines.56559423_1619999631108387_r.jpeg56559423_1619999659113966_r.jpeg56559423_1619999693965257_r.jpeg56559423_1619999724125304_r.jpeg56559423_1619999737845789_r.jpeg
