Service Dog for Kaylee

This is for my daughter Kaylee Dunham!  Kaylee was a preemie and weighed only 1lb 13 oz!  Due to her birth she has cerebral palsy that affects her physically!  Kaylee has been thru many surgeries but has always been very positive and dreams of walking, driving, and going to college!!  Kaylee is now 14 and beginning to plan for these dreams!  She has maintained straight A's even in her honors classes!  Kaylee has struggled with daily living skills, and relies on me, her mother, to assist her!  She is able to transition from her walker to her wheelchair independently bur relies on me for balance.  She is able to do many things, but I have to be close incase she gets stuck or drops something!  Kaylee wants so badly to be independent and she really doesn't want me to go to college with her!!  Kaylee asked about getting a service dog about 4 years ago, and I checked into it but it is very expensive and there is usually a waiting list.  My husband and I do okay, but I am unable to work due to appointments for my daughter with cerebral palsy and my son with Aspergers.  So, I put her off until recently when I realized how a service dog would give her more independence and help her to go to college!  She is a bright young lady that deserves to have her dreams come true!!  Please help us on our journey of a service dog for Kaylee!
