Saving my Life.

That’s what happened to me when I was matched to a fantastically trained Service dog. Tommy Boy aka, Tommy.

He became my service dog in 2006, and that’s when my life was saved. Before, being matched and training with Tommy, my life was a complete disaster. I was extremely depressed, withdrawn from family and life, no confidence in self and no independence. For over 19 years, I was trying to survive from terrible chronic illness.

Before I became ill, I was very confident and an independent woman. It wasn’t until started working with Tommy that I regained all my independence and ventured back to life, and family.

Most people think that doctors, fireman, and nurses save lives; but in my case, Tommy, my service dog, saved mine.
