Help Athena get a service dog

My daughter has been diagnosed with anxiety and PTSD.  Her caregiver has recommended a service animal trained to alert and divert when she's having attacks.

Unfortunately, insurance doesn't cover service animals and properly trained service animals are expensive.  I've searched looking for best price and we're coming up about $8000 short.

We need the first $500 within the next two weeks.  $4000 by the end of the year, and the remaining $4000 within the following six months.  Sooner, of course, is always better as starting without being able to finish would be a serious problem.
