Summary: Oral history with Tony Ly, who was born in Fountain Valley, California, in 1988. After the fall of Saigon, his family had fled to the Philippines and then migrated to California where he was born a year later. He was born and raised in the Garden Grove area where he also went to high school and later he went to the University of California Irvine, majoring in business economics. After graduation, he stopped working to take care of his brother who had fallen ill. His parents could not assist because they could not speak English well enough to communicate with the doctors. After seeing how well his brother had felt when he went to the chiropractors, he decided to attend the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic to become a chiropractor. Tony still lives in Garden Grove area with his parents in order to take care of his older brother and also works as a chiropractor in Pasadena, California.
