Tyler Michael Tannous
Organized by: Abir Villani
Tyler is a five year old boy, who lost his Father, suddenly on February 20, 2016. This has been devestating to our whole family. His father and his Grandmother have been raising him since birth. His mother was not helping in many ways. She is an alcoholic, who has two DUI convictions. Both times she was in a car crash. She spent three months in prison and then released. She has been on probation ever since. She is going to court next week for multiple probation violations. The court is seeking two years of jail time. He will then have lost both of his parents. My parents are seeking full custody now. This is to keep Tyler safe and stable. We worry that one day, his mother will drive in a car with him, while under the influence of alcohol . This is our greatest fear!! With my parents having primary custody , they will be able to meet Tyler's medical and educational needs. My parents are on a fixed income and are struggling. We don't want them to sell their home because this would be another loss for Tyler. This is the only home that he knows and has all of his memories of his father there. Tyler is a very smart little boy. In his last year of pre school, he won a Math Master award. His father was always teaching him math facts and many other things. My parents are unable to help him with his homework, especially math. Because of the common core in Pennsylvania, the teachers are teaching them many different ways to do one simple problem. Very difficult and time-consuming. With your donation, my parents will be able to hire a tutor for him, on a regular basis. Any and all extra money will go directly into his College fund. Thank you so much for your consideration to donate to Tyler's fund!!
