Help Kinsey get Brody the Service Dog

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Sherry and I am fundraising for my daughter Kinsey to gain some independence with a service dog.
Kinsey was a healthy athlete who competed in cross country meets for the past four years. About three months ago, her world completely changed with the diagnoses of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Dysautonomia, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Fibrous Dysplasia in her skull, and non-epileptic seizures. She went from being able to run for miles to having difficulty simply getting up from a chair.

We met Brody at Canines4Hope and it was love at first sight.
Brody will be trained to provide stability for Kinsey as she is walking allowing her to safely maneuver without her wheelchair. He will also be trained to alert her to pending seizures or fainting, provide compression therapy, and pick things up for her which will decrease her postural fainting episodes.

Because of his age and the extensive training necessary, Brody is expensive. The funds generated here will help to pay for him. The goal is to provide Kinsey with years of independence and safety as she learns to navigate this new way of life.
