I have to say, that during Thanksgiving my neice showed 50 Tyson's videos and everyone were hysterially laughing with tears in their eyes. I also laughed but I have worked with Autistic children for many years. Working with individuals with Autism can be challenging but also rewarding. I do applaud 50 Tyson for going after his dream and in doing so, being able to raise money towards Awareness for Autism.
Go 50 Tyson!
