As you know, Anthony had a stroke on May 5th.  This has been a life-changing event for Anthony and his family, as the stroke caused considerable impairment to his right side.  He has made great strides over this past month, re-learning to walk with assistance and rebuilding motor skills and strenth in his arm, hand, and leg.  He will be released from inpatient rehab on Saturday, June 7th - and that's when the hard work begins!

Anthony and Jeanine are so grateful for the many loving expressions of support - including meals, visits and help with the boys.  Many of you have asked repeatedly what other needs the family has, especially during the transition to home. The first six months after a stroke is critically important when it comes to rehabilitation.  At this time, Anthony is unable to work, drive, or be completely independent in life tasks.  As he works on regaining his mobility, he will need assistance from family and professionals to meet his needs.  Frequent outpatient therapy visits (as many as they can afford,) adaptive equipment, and high medical bills all pose a serious challenge.  The out of pocket costs for the long road to recovery ahead are considerable.  The "Friends of Anthony Viola" are listening and trying to create solutions - to allow Anthony and Jeanine to focus on rehabilitation and rebuild some sense of normalcy in their lives.  Please continue to encourage and support Anthony in those varied and wonderful ways, and help us further by donating to this fundraising campaign as you are able.  Funds will go directly to Anthony and Jeanine.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help!
