Leah takes her girls on a vacation and while out to lunch with her friend Maddy, she explains how much easier it is for Ali to get around now that she has a power wheelchair. Ali has struggled all her life with her diagnosis, which affects major organs in her body like her lungs, her heart, and she could even lose her ability to walk.
