Help Jada Get a Service Dog!

Hi, my name is Stephanie and I am Jada's mom! Jada is 8 years old and has a long medical history that began at birth. She requires a lot of care at home as well as in the hospital because she is very susceptible to colds and they often require hospitalization because she has such little lung reserve. She is on oxygen 24 hours a day due to pulmonary hypertension and acute lung disease, she has two titanium rods in her back due to severe scoliosis and is g-tube fed. She is an amazing young lady who loves to play with her friends, sing, draw and make people laugh! 

We are raising money to get Jada a service dog which will help her by carrying her oxygen tanks and help stabilize her when walking on rocky or uneven surfaces. The dog will also help with her anxietys during hospital stays. All of the funds we raise will go to this cause as it costs $10,000 to obtain a service dog which covers training and ongoing care of the dog during its lifetime . We are asking for an additional $2000 to cover travel and lodging expenses during a two week training class that is 4 hours away from our home in Olympia. Any additional donations beyond the $12,000 will go towards Jada's care and quality of life and may also be used for any expenses her service dog requires. 

The importance of Jada getting a service dog is huge! Right now if she wants to go out to play she has to wear a backpack that holds her 5lb tank which is hard on her back and zaps her energy. She knows it's expensive and that we may not raise enough money but shes very excited at the prospects of having a lifetime helper and companion! 

Please forward her campaign on to everyone you know and anything you can give, even $5, will go so far at getting us to our goal! Thank you so much for your support, God bless!
