Victoria's Service Dog

We need your help to bring Victoria's dream dog home to her by her birthday on September 21st. He will be an emotional support dog while going through training classes with Tori.  Then he will be a full service dog for epilepsy and postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome.

For those of you that have been following Victoria on her facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/travelingwithtori/)  you have seen the rollercoaster of this past year.  After 11 trips to Boston Children's hospital,  and countless drives from SC to NY,  we have more challenges ahead of us. 

Victoria was diagnosed with neuronal migration disorder in her brain where there are groups of nerves stuck in the wrong spot,  postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. Epilepsy has been added after seizures were picked up on the most recent EEG. Tori's immune system has taken quite the hit and she is not able to be in school at this time.  We are awaiting the result of a genetic test to confirm vascular Ehlers-Danlos which is a life threatening condition.

With seizures possible at any point as well as taking the chance of passing out every time she stands up due to POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome), a service dog was recommended by her doctor.  After spending over half of this past year in the hospital,  Tori said her dream would be a male husky with blue eyes ... And she will name him Fearless. Together,  they will be unstoppable. 

This is where we need your help! We found the perfect dog! We will need help purchasing him and I would love to set up a fund to prepay for the grooming and training classes.  That way,  we can focus on Tori's health that has been declining. Any and all help is appreciated!

We love all of you so much and I cannot wait to share with you Tori's face on her birthday as she opens her eyes to the puppy of her dreams!
