Tourette Syndrome Summer Camp

Tourette Syndrome Summer Camp

In this Thursday, July 17, 2014 photo, Kristin Moorehead, 13, of Tampa, Fla., left, comforts A.J. Dorough, 13, of Covington, Ga., as he uses a foam kick board to avoid hurting himself during a tic where he feels the urge to hit his hand against a wall at Camp Twitch and Shout, a camp for children with Tourette's Syndrome in Winder, Ga. The two met at the camp four years ago and always attend the dance together on the camp's final night. "We help each other out," says Moorehead, who first tried deep breathing exercises with Dorough to get through the tic. After it didn't work she could only comfort him while he hit the wall to get the tic out. "The hard part is where you have to stand by and watch, you feel so helpless." (AP Photo/David Goldman)
