Simon is an energetic four-year-old boy, full of joy and love and mischief!! Simon has had a lifetime of medical issues and hospitalizations and yet maintains a cheery outlook on life. Simon's medical journey has been long and includes Autism, Epilepsy, Gtube Dependency, Genetic Abnormalities and many illnesses. Simon is non-verbal, but communicates with the use of an iPad. He is very smart and learning every day. He has zero safety awareness and requires constant supervision to keep him from harm.
Simon absolutely loves animals and has spent time with dogs and service dogs. A service dog would be invaluable to Simon to gain independence and provide safety; his service dog will be trained for autism support, seizures, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), elopment (running away) and tracking, and even detection of a feeding tube malfunction/leak. A service dog is an investment and we are required to raise half of the funds needed - $17,000 to be placed on a wait list.
Simon’s tagline is #growsimongrow because Simon works SO very hard to grow – both in stature and in development.
Simon and his older brother deserve as much of a care-free childhood as possible. A service dog will help in hundreds of ways.
Many thanks for your support!!
