A member of the board and Tony’s wife, Betsy brings the important caregiver perspective, as she quickly became Tony’s caregiver during his journey. Betsy is a retired school teacher who still occasionally substitutes in the Chartiers Valley School District. When she married Tony in 1978 she never imagined that her “in sickness and in health” marriage vows would lead her into her role as a caregiver. Tony refers to her as his “angel on earth” and believes her attentive care is the reason he is still alive today. Betsy enjoys the theatre, the company of friends and, most importantly, her grandchildren. She also volunteers for the Center for Organ Recovery & Education (CORE).
