Tony and his wife, Amanda, are raising two precious girls, Cora and Louise. Tony's diagnosis came weeks after Louise's birth, and 2 years later, they are all living life to the fullest. As Tony's ALS progresses, they adapt as necessary. His service dog, Jake, is the epitome of man's best friend. There's computer technology that promises to keep Tony in communication with others as his speech is impacted by the disease. The recent remodeling of their bedroom, bathroom and foyer have made their home safer and more comfortable, and computer software will allow Tony to better control their living space. And the need for a new vehicle has led to the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible van, of which they just took ownership last week. Of all of these adaptations, Amanda's decision to take a sabbatical from her teaching career was a major decision that will undoubtedly improve Tony's quality of life and ensure optimal time together.
