Living with Gaucher
Loves being active, both physically and intellectually
Doesn't let his diagnosis slow him down
Meeting the challenges - on the move
Whether its travelling the world or living in another city away from home, Tim knows how to make life work for him. He credits living an active life, the support of his parents, and his Gaucher disease treatment regimen for his good health.
"Sometimes there is a lot to think about around organizing treatments, but when it comes to a challenge, I feel if you want to do it, you can. There were hurdles to getting treatment while I was away, mainly to do with funding. By talking with my health insurer and doctors, with perseverance and organization, we overcame every challenge."
