Please help Andrew get a therapy dog

Andrew is our very sweet, loving and amazing (almost) 10 year old Nephew. He was diagnosed with Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy at a very young age. He is losing mobility by the day. His mama is as strong as a mama can be watching her child struggle to do each and every task. She is a single mom and wonderful teacher. As you can imagine his medical bills are substantial as well as the daily concoction of medicine he takes to keep what mobility he has. Andrew also has much more than mobility to address. I encourage you to please research. I am creating this to help raise money to purchase Andrew his dream dog, a Bernese Mountain dog. The pup is expensive but on top of that the pup will need extensive training to become his therapy dog. This sweet boy with the biggest heart NEVER complains about what he can't do but always looks forward to tomorrow with the understanding that it will be harder than today. PLEASE help me raise the money to give this boy his one wish.
