Anthony Izzo East Aurora, NY 4,790 Votes
Tony Izzo is a 15 year old young man who does not allow his battle with Mitochondrial Myopathy, a form of Muscular Dystrophy that causes extreme fatigue and weakness, to hinder his spirits. When he is not working hard at school, he is volunteering at events such as the MDA Muscle Walk, where he was a guest speaker this year. He was a guest on TV last year for the MDA telethon, and he will be a guest speaker at this years local Make-a Wish gala. Tony also likes to help raise money for the United Mitochondrial Disease Foundation and the Independence Foundation. Helping others is very important to Tony, and he hopes to one day be able to put these skills to good use through a helping profession. A reliable vehicle would help Tony to achieve this goal. Thanks for your support!
