One man battling Tourette's Syndrome is sharing his journey with the world.
With a small camera and a message to the world, Ryan Rado is breaking down barriers.
At the age of six he was diagnosed with Tourette's Syndrome, OCD and ADHD.
They're all things he has learned to live with in his nearly 34 years.
So, with his friend Ethan and that small camera he is documenting a journey.
Nearly two weeks ago Ryan stopped taking his medication to control his tics and soon he will start new technology called Neuro Training powered by Brainstate Technology.
Using a machine, his brain waves will be recorded and those waves converted into music.
This treatment is uncertain, but Ryan says he's taken medication so long that he doesn't know where the medication ends and he begins.
With thousands of people visiting his blog Ryan says this journey is worth fighting and sharing with with world.
The treatments are not cheap --- each session costs $1,500.
Rado has raised more than $4,700 with the help of his friends.
