The Story

Have you ever been so proud of a child? I have and I am!!! My son Ryan will be 6 soon and was diagnosed with autism, global developmental delay, and sensory processing disorder at the age of 2. At first my heart was broken. All my dreams for my son were shattered. I grieved the lose of his childhood because now his life would turn into endless therapies, doctor appointments and school. Which is the case he works nonstop trying to make it in our world when he's locked in his own. Over the years my dreams for Ryan have changed and I will never take the little things for granted. He is non-verbal and his smile speaks right to my heart. When he sees his service dog, Chatham, he smiles and giggles. In that brief moment I forget all of his struggles and he gets to be a kid. They will form a bond that he can't get from another person, not his dad, not his sisters, not his little brother or even myself. He will have a friend that will be there for him! Chatham will help keep him safe (from running into traffic), help him transition from home to therapies, stores, and other places our family goes, teach him responsibility, give him emotional support, help him sleep better at night, give him confidence, and so much more. Which isn't that the kind of friend we all want for our kids?

The page isn't allowing me to lower our goal or close this out. But I wanted everyone to know WE REACHED OUR GOAL! Thank you so much for the support along the way, it's mean the world to our family. All money that goes above the $8,000 will go in an account for Ryan and Chatham and go towards the care of the service dog, vet bills, etc. Thank you again for everything! I can't believe he reached his goal! You all are amazing!

We are all working hard to make this fundraiser a success. We want Ryan to get his service dog as soon as possible. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. We are off to a great start. We have recieved a donation of $2,000 that is going to go directly into his account with Project Chance. So our goal on this site will be dropping from $8,000 to $6,000 to show that money is accounted for. Every $1 counts!!! Thanks again!!!
