Finding a balance: A struggle between treatment and independence
Another struggle that the entire family undergoes is striking the perfect balance between getting Ali the proper treatment she needs and letting her lead an independent life. Leah and ex-husband Corey have both been documented struggling with that equilibrium. After all, what kind of parents would not want their child to live in the most comfortable manner they could possibly provide? One such episode that demonstrates this dilemma was when the couple was seen to be rather unwilling to get Ali in a wheelchair despite the advice of the doctor.
