In Need Of A Mobility & Service Dog

My girlfriend Cassandra of almost 8 years has multiple medical conditions, none of which they have been able to truly treat or find ways to at least make her life stable and safe. She has issues from in her brain, disc issues down her neck and down her spine, severe nerve issue and damage and issues down both arms and legs. Nearly 4 years ago she was forced out of being a Pastry Chef.

She started off with forearm crutches 3 years ago, then in Feb 2018 her condition in her brain also gives her really bad paralysis and she broke 4 different bones in her left knee getting out of bed not realizing that both legs were paralyzed. Since the day after that she has been in a wheelchair. Every treatment and every doctor isnt helping.

So, we are going to try and go at this from a different direction. Because I am her legal caregiver, I still have to work a full time job and that leaves her home alone a lot.  We are trying to raise money for a Great Dane. We have the dog in line already. But, we just need help on some of financial part of getting starting. We are going to need 2 big crates (one for her truck, she wont be able to lift in and out every time), we need some specialized harnesses as he/she get bigger... and bigger. Also, we may need a few shots in a few months and to get the pup fixed.  We have wanted this for her if she falls at home, the dog will be trained to brace to help her up, trained to work with a specialist trainer, trained also to walk with her chair and just so so many plans. 

Please, if there is anything that you could possibly donate to help us try and make this Mobility Dog a reality for her safety and my sanity while I have to be at work,  then you could truly change the course of our family's safety and stress. And there are never enough thank yous in the world I could give to help keep Cassandra safe.
