A Service Dog for Logan Mackie

Hi, my name is Logan, I am 17 years old; and I am raising money for a service dog. I was born with two brain tumors which were successfully removed, I but was left with ongoing medical conditions which may have led to my current condition. Two years ago, I had my first (of many) Grand Mal seizures and was officially diagnosed with epilepsy. Since then, I have had complications due to epilepsy and was hospitalized in November 2015. Since November of 2015, I have not been able to attend school and have been on home and hospital care due to epilepsy, PNES, and general anxiety disorder. My team of doctors from Johns Hopkins have concurred in the belief that a service dog would allow me to get back to school and generally enhance the quality of my life. Right now I can't do the things that most 17 year olds take for granted; such as driving, social activities, athletics or being in large crowds. In obtaining a service dog, I hope to be more self sufficient and independent and ultimately give back in some measure by using my dog to help others and maybe making their lives better as well.

On behalf of myself, my family and friends, your support in any form... whether financial or encouragement means so much.
