Less than a year ago, Carton and four friends started up Tic Toc Stop in order to fight Tourette Syndrome and come up with a cure for the disorder. Carton and two of his kids have Tourette’s and everyday those with the disorder have to fight off the tics that come with it. The WFAN host has come a long way in helping to find a cure, and significant progress has been made since starting the foundation last summer. They have already come up with a way to stop these tics.
“We took the dentist idea of using an orthotic or a mouthpiece to try and help with the tic and we decided that we would be the lead foundation to study it, to investigate it, do research and development and make sure that if we did go forward with using an orthotic that we were in control of what we were putting in kids’ mouths,” Carton said. “We’ve evolved quite a bit and we’ve come a long way.”
