In this conversation, I talk with Tony and Karen Vick, a remarkable young couple navigating life with ALS who are making an impact in the caregiving community.

Here you’ll meet Tony and Karen Vick.  Tony, a brave U.S. Veteran, has been living with ALS for the past 6 years.  Karen, his dedicated wife, serves as his full-time caregiver, showcasing the strength of their bond.  Despite facing the challenges of ALS, Tony and Karen lead a fulfilling life and share their journey on Karen's Instagram account, @thekaregiver.  After realizing how many young caregivers are out there, they decided to share more on the day-to-day realities, triumphs, and tribulations of living with ALS.  They hope to help other caregivers and individuals grappling with illnesses like ALS.  Tune in to discover how they extend their reach and provide support through their engaging weekly LIVE sessions on Instagram @thekaregiver, where they update their journey, answer questions, and offer encouragement.  Both Tony & Karen are returning guests on this podcast.  We get an update on how Tony is doing and his thoughts on his positive perspective.  Tony also shares advice for other veterans living with ALS.  Listen in as I delve into the inspiring story of Tony and Karen Vick, demonstrating that even in the face of adversity, love, resilience, and community can thrive.  Thank you for listening in and sharing with a friend.

Hugs, Lorri
