We are helping Toni and her family with medical, living & final expenses. Toni is my sister in law, she is 45yrs old. Late summer of 2018 she became sick and couldn't shake it, attending multiple doctors to try and figure it out. The Illness started to slowly get worse, by spring of 2019 she couldn't walk without help. She had to stop her full time self employment and part time work as a speech therapist/ special needs aide at Davis County school district .By summer she could not drive, had to walk with a walker, and her speech was becoming effected. Toni's husband, JR has not left her side, as her condition got worse, he still continued to work while being completely devoted to getting her better. Right by her side everyday, taking her to endless doc appts for more tests trying to get answers. He even learned how to do her make up perfectly and would do it everyday.
July of 2019 they moved to st george to be closer to her family. Doctors advised her to enter into a rehabilitation center with hopes she would learn to walk again, feed herself, talk etc.. she was in the facility for 5 months, but was sent home in December with a diagnosis of ALS... Devestated, we still had hope that maybe it wasn't..
JR was laid off 5 months later due to COVID-19 . His unemployment ended in August. He, with the help of family, has continued to take care of Toni at home. Last week she was put on hospice care. Toni and her family can use all the help they can get now.
I am asking that you donate what you can, to this family. Your generosity will allow them to enjoy these next few months with their mom, knowing some relief will come to help pay for medical bills, mortgage payments and final costs. Even a share on your page, if a donation isn't possible, will help spread the word .
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.
