After a lengthy medical crisis, diagnosis and journey, which took her through the depths of a disabling illness and rehabilitation into the bright future you see here, Toni is the founder of Helping Hands Services. ToniJo created Helping Hand Services when she found herself struggling to take care of her own family at the peak of her illness.
“I know what it’s like to feel like your body is against you. In 2012, I was diagnosed as having Fibromyalgia with adrenal exhaustion, coupled with Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS) as well as COPD. From 2012 to 2014 I was nearly bedridden. Not being able to do everyday activities made me feel like a failure. I struggled with taking care of myself, my family and my home. I wished there were a service like this for me when I needed it.” – ToniJo Founder of Helping Hands Services
