Easterseals is Keeping Emory and Tish Together as a Family

Love is not just words said on your wedding day, but how one lives those words out each day. Emory and Otisia “Tish” did not know 37 years ago when they said the words “in sickness and in health” that sickness would come sooner than they thought. Though caregiving for Tish, who had her first stroke at 45, has not come without trials, it is Emory’s great attitude, support from family and a team of caring professionals at an Easterseals Adult Day program, that has really made a huge impact in their lives.
