From homeless to published poet, Buffalo man with cerebral palsy defies all obstacles

Tyrone Huston was born and raised in Buffalo, N.Y. and was born premature with a diagnosis of Cerebral Palsy. In 2013, at 21 years old, Huston had found himself at The Buffalo City Mission, the homeless shelter for men. Huston has overcome obstacles that some of us will never know in our lifetime in such a short amount of time. Local do-gooder Kate Tolley runs a Christmas Blessing every year to help others during Christmastime and raised enough funds to purchase a laptop for Huston to build his dream of being a poet. Here she shares more about her friendship with Huston and how he has defied all obstacles.

“One thing I know about Tyrone Huston since knowing him is he has always been loving, had a positive outlook to his situation no matter what it looked like, and a heart of gratitude!
