Join our chapter as Tony Godoy shares his experiences as a male caregiver: what it was like at the original diagnosis of his wife, his expectations vs reality, and what life is like as a male caregiver when normally the role is gendered towards females. We look forward to this unique session, come with your perspectives and questions!
Audrey joined the HealthTree Foundation as the Myeloma Community Program Director in 2020. While not knowing much about myeloma at the start, she has since worked hard to educate herself, empathize and learn from others' experiences. She loves this job. Audrey is passionate about serving others, loves learning, and enjoys a nice mug of hot chocolate no matter the weather.
Tony Godoy is a father, husband, substance abuse case manager and caregiver to his wife. At 41 years old, Tony became a caregiver to his wife Angela when she was diagnosed in January 2017. The hardest part of the journey for him has been having to work while supporting Angela emotionally and making sure she made it to her doctor appointments. He learned to navigate the land of Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), in order to secure time off for his caregiving role. His ability to successfully juggle many roles is due to the support of his large family and organizations that offer resources like Healthtree.
