Meet Tony

Meet Tony | Ascentria Care Alliance ScoopIt News | Scoop.it

At just 22 years old, Tony’s life was changed forever when he became paralyzed after a logging accident. When he needed help, Tony’s mom decided to change her own life and become his full-time caregiver through Ascentria's In-Home Care program. No one ever thinks that such an accident could happen to them, until it does. And when it happened to Tony, he was so grateful for the support and encouragement he received to get through his toughest emotional and physical battles. Tony is now thriving! He recently received his license and works full time for a company that builds Ripchairs — off-road vehicles that people with wheelchairs can ride in. This Easter season, please consider donating to Ascentria and making a difference in someone’s life. Donate now at ascentria.org/hope.
