When James Paisley’s son Ty was first diagnosed at the age of 15 months with the genetic disorder hypohidrotic ectodermal dysplasia, there were plenty of questions, fears and anxieties, but few answers and reassurances at hand. There are over 150 different kinds of ectodermal dysplasia — in Ty’s case, the effects are sparse hair, no teeth and the inability to sweat — but because of the general rarity of the condition, treatment and counseling are often not readily available.

No such luck for Glendale High alumnus James Paisley, who participated in the 2009 running of the event on Sept. 5, which turned out to be an unusually windy day for a swim.
