The panelist Tony Godoy
Tony Godoy

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.
