Tim Howard

Although the US team did not win the World Cup, there was an amazing effort by the entire team - especially goalie Tim Howard.  Tim's record breaking saves were the talk of the media, along with the fact that Tim has Tourettes.  Tim noted; 'And today, “one of the biggest things I can do [for Tourette's awareness] is be in the public eye,” he told Neurology Now. “I’m on television, ticcing and twitching. I think that’s kind of cool.”'

Tim is a great public example of an adult living successfully with a disability.  What an awesome way to positively share and raise awareness about Tourette's.  Congratulations Tim for your outstanding achievements on and off the field!
