MASON GETS A SERVICE DOG

*♥️we wanted to share how thankful we are for the outpouring of support by so many people. We also wanted to assure everyone if we go over goal, we will be putting anything extra in an account that goes toward anything Mason and his dog will need! Equipment, needed extra training, grooming, vet care, etc. At the end of August, when the fundraisers are over, we will close out the Go Fund Me account. Again we thank you for being so amazing and helping us make this happen for our son! ♥️ Mason was diagnosed when he was 5 with Ehlers Danlos syndrome classical type 1. The diagnosis came after a very hard recovery from tibial torsion surgery.  Over the years we have made accommodations to make Masons life a little easier. As hegets older however, he wants to have more confidence to do things on his own. However, some days he wakes up and he can’t walk. He crawls, or he’s very unstable on his feet. So he avoids going out to play,or going to the park, or doing a lot of things where he may have a harder time getting around. 

after looking for all of the possibilities available to help him, and in hopes of avoiding a wheelchair for his bad days. We came across the prospect of a service dog. After talking with multiple different services, we just know this is what will be the best thing we can do for Mason. Even just to gain confidence to be able to go out and do more, with his dog next to him he would feel safer. Less afraid to take on his challenging days. Not to mention, on those challenging days, his dog would be there to help him walk, to get things, to alert me when Mason needs help. 

his new possibilities could be endless. 

please help us make this a reality for Mason. We hate to ask for help in any aspect of life, but we know this is what Mason needs.
