The Story

The Korotko family is looking to bring in a new member that will help Cyrus through an upcoming major surgery.  This therapy dog (yet to be named) will be there for Cyrus as he both physically and mentally recovers.  Cyrus was born with Spina Bifida and will continue to have moments of struggle throughout his life that we hope to ease with the help of a therapy dog.  In addition to helping Cyrus the dog will be helpful within Jenny's (mom of Cyrus) trauma therapy practice.  Jenny works with veterans struggling with PTSD and also non veteran clients working through trauma. Please help us bring in this healing animal and spread the love we all need and deserve.  Thank you for reading and we truly appreciate your donation.  Love, The Korotkos (Zach, Jenny, Jasper, and Cyrus).

New pictures of Reese! We are so very excited to meet her!!! It's a 6 hour drive there and we get to stay 'on campus' nearby where they train all the dogs. The cabin they have us in is gorgeous.   One of the dogs just had puppies so we are hoping to get a peek at those cuties.  We arrive Friday May 12th, train in the afternoon, train Saturday and take our tests Sunday.  After our graduation ceremony Sunday we drive home with our new therapy dog Reese, or "Reesie" as Cyrus calls her.  We are so very excited.  Thank you all for your love and support.

Hello!  I apologize for not updating sooner.  It has been a busy few months but we are finding the weather in Chicago very calming and beautiful lately.  The Korotko family travels to Ava, IL (about a 6 hour drive total) Friday May 12th and we will return with Reese our Therapy Dog Sunday evening.  I could not have picked a better mother's day gift :)  We will train with Reese as a family and individually Friday and Saturday then Sunday we test and have a graduation ceremony.  I plan on taking a lot of pictures.  The non for profit (SIT service dogs) has a beautiful cabin for us to stay at while we train with Reese.  Thank you all for your love and support.  We are forever grateful.  Much love,
Jenny, Zach, Jasper and Cyrus Korotko
