As far as I have come on this road to recovery, I am fully aware that I still have a long way to go. I am proud of all the work that I have done and cognizant of all the work that remains. This was never a part of my life plan, of course. When that vehicle hit me – a hit-and-run – all my plans went out the window. Whatever I thought I was going to be doing the next day or the day after that or any of the days after that, I had been wrong. Recovery was now the only plan that I could consider. After all the surgeries, all the pain, all the therapies, all the heartache, all the treatments: I am still moving forward.

Now, I am at a crossroads. In order to move forward as boldly and as confidently as possible, I need some assistance. In this situation, a service dog is just perfect. A service dog would change my life in a number of positive ways, putting me on track to living my life again. I have already selected a dog, Oliver, and he is in the midst of training at this very moment. Oliver is an incredibly bright and friendly dog, the ideal candidate for a job like this. While he is naturally gifted, he will still require a lot of training and preparation to get where he needs to be. This is where Stephanie comes into the picture.

Stephanie is a trainer who has accrued many years of professional experience training service dogs. She is, to put it simply, a master of what she does. Molding dogs like clay, she produces service animals of a consistently high quality, her reputation preceding her. I have all the confidence in the world that Stephanie is the right person to teach Oliver everything that he needs to know. About that I have no doubt, none at all.

I do doubt, however, my ability to raise the funds that I so desperately need in order to pay Stephanie’s salary. Considering the fact that she will be working with Oliver 24/7, the rate that she is charging -- $3,000 per month – is very fair. Still, that amount is enormous to me, especially as I continue to run into new, unexpected medical bills and other miscellaneous expenses during this difficult period.

I am turning to you, GoFundMe, for help raising $18,000. These funds will cover the costs of Stephanie’s salary for a full six months, the time that it will take to get Oliver into shape and to teach him everything he needs to know to assist me. As it stands now, there is no other way for me to return to any sort of a normal life without this. This service dog could be life-changing for me, giving me a much-needed leg-up.

Every contribution counts. I appreciate your support, friends. So many of you have shown me so much kindness throughout my recovery that I know I am surrounded by love.

Thank you.
Goals
$0 of $2,782 per month
When I hit $7,000 per month, I will be able to pay for the training of Oliver (my service dog necessary for my survival) while also helping to cover medical treatments and therapies not covered by my PPO health insurance plan.
