Cynthia from Richmond, Virginia selflessly gave up her career and livelihood to become a full-time caregiver to her husband, Jim, who has multiple sclerosis (MS), is a quadriplegic and only has mobility with his head. As her husband’s condition progressed, Jim became physically dependent and needed greater assistance to take care of his needs. Cynthia and Jim looked into hiring a caregiver, but with limited finances, the cost was too great. This was when Cynthia decided to put her career aside to become his primary caregiver.
