Tyler Lindzy has led a very active life and has overcome some amazing difficulties for a 7-year-old.

His teacher, Jodi McGann nominated him for this award.

Tyler was diagnosed with a serious disease when he was very young. He was in the hospital numerous times and received lots of physical therapy.

After countless medical procedures, it was once thought he would not be able to participate in athletics. Despite the doctor's report and as a testament to his determination, he joined the Irish Youth Hockey League.

Earlier this year he scored the winning goal for his team and they won the gold medal for his division.

In addition, earlier this year his little brother turned blue and couldn't breathe. Tyler called 911 and talked with emergency personnel until his mom could get to the phone.

However, this isn't the first time Tyler has had to get help for a family relative.

One evening when he was five-years-old, his mom fell unconscious on the floor. Tyler ran to a neighbor's house where a police officer lived to get help.

Tyler's teacher says he strives to do well in the classroom, giving respect to others while displaying honesty and integrity. He is definitely worthy of the Do The Right Thing Award.
