July 17th, 2000, born with a clover leaf skull and fused elbows, Tysen Lefebvre was soon diagnosed with Pfeiffer Syndrome Type 2 a genetic disorder that in his case causes many issues including; obstructed sleep apnea, hearing loss and mobility. Tysen continues to undergo a long series of surgeries that started when he was just 9 days old. Despite his own numerous medical procedures, surgeries and appointments, Tysen choses to spend his energy focusing on how he can help other children living with a critical illness like himself.
November 11th,2012, Tysen packed his backs and headed out west for Los Angeles to meet his idol Adam Sandler. After meeting Adam in person and seeing all the good he had done and continues to do for others, Tysen was inspired to make a difference himself. October 29th,2013, Tysen launched his Mission to a Million with the goal of raising a million dollars for Make-A-Wish® Eastern Ontario and adopt 100 wishes for local children in his community. Tysen set himself a 5-year plan with a goal of raising 200k a year, reaching his 1-million-dollar goal by October 29th,2018. As of today, Tysen has raised close to 913k and adopted 70 wishes. Tysen is a guy on a mission determined to live by his motto “Dream Big or Go Home”!
