A.W. has autism. He is 9 years old and cannot speak. Over the summer he has repeatedly escaped our home and school. He has crossed highways, almost been ran over. He has meltdowns in public. We rarely go places with with, yet he needs to go places. I previously tried to train a dog that I had purchased and after wasting $2000 we were given a mean dog that did not know any commands. I finally found an organization and he was approved for a service dog!!! Imagine my excitement. The dog is very reasonably priced, too. $500 that is refundable or you can donate back, in one year. I have that covered :) But A.W. and I have to travel 9 1/2 hours away for a week long training! There are hotel, food, gas, and other expenses to cover. Please consider helping my son. He deserves it. Last night he escaped. I frantically called 911, only to find him moments later sitting in the car. Rest assured that your donation could some day help save his life. I have taken so many precautions, this is just one more. Thank you so much, your help means everything to me.
