My husband Jack values a long distance friendship he has with a remarkable person he has not even met. They have been emailing and phoning for a couple of years.
Jack first met Tony's wife, Vivian, who connected the two via email. Tony Lombardo is an inspiration to Jack and will be to you as well. Tony has been dealing with progressive MS for over 30 years and has lost the complete use of his legs and left arm. Yet he moves ahead educating, motivating and helping others deal with their challenges whether they be physical, mental or financial or any of the other myriad ways that life can challenge us. In exchange, Tony asks for nothing other than for all of us to share with his community our personal stories on how we overcome our hurdles.
Visit Tony's web site at letshearyourstory.com. There you will find content on how people, just like you and me, are dealing with adversity - big and small. Tony's web site includes books, movies, music, poems and stories about overcoming the challenges that life throws at us. Tony has written his own book that you will enjoy and want to share: On Both Sides of the Fence. The web site has a robust resources section steering you to tools that will help you navigate through life's choppy waters.
Best of all, the web site will provide you a place and an opportunity to share your challenges with the remarkable community that Tony has been developing over the past several years. The world would be a much better place if there were more people likeTony around. That's for sure.
We are looking forward to meeting Tony for the first time in November. It will be a long overdue meeting with a remarkable person.
